Silent Auction, Audible Change

Inner Equinox, Solomon's Island, MD
Thank you to everyone who bid in our Spring Silent Auction, both online, in our classrooms and at our various community booths; and to all bidders in our Oasis Retreats Silent Auction at the Inner Equinox Grand re-Opening celebration last weekend! Both auctions were a great success!

Our Spring Silent Auction was able to yield over $400 to support the further development of Joy Lane Healing Center. What's first on the list for fund allocation? Completion of the parking lot expansion project, for one!

And the Oasis Auction? Together we raised $600 in a single afternoon for the upcoming June 10th Oasis Retreat. Along with other community member and business sponsorships, we are close to raising enough to cover the general costs of $1800. We are proud that through your support we can offer this special day of rejuvenation to people living with cancer at a sliding scale cost down to $40.

That would not have been possible at all were it not for the efforts of the entire Inner Equinox team. And what a beautiful day that was last weekend-- so many people relaxing on the front porch, exploring the store, learning about techniques and traditions, and enjoying the many free services that some very talented healers were happy to offer. "Shari (Russel) and I are thrilled with the success of community and like-mind gatherings that is continuing to grow through, around and with Inner Equinox," writes Michele Quesenberry, co-founder (with Shari) of Inner Equinox.
