Special Events

First Annual Spring Soiree!

We had a most magical evening at camper Teresa Santerre’s home.  First, their home is amazing – Teresa and her husband run Prestige Custom Builders.  It was pretty incredible to see the photo of the original craftsman home – in which it was pepto bismol pink and well not so purty –   and the complete transformation they did on the whole place –  including a wide wrap around porch and an outdoor covered fireplace where we wound up spending most of the night.

Then there was the fact that the weather held and we were able to be in those outdoor spaces at all!  And a soiree ain’t no good if its not about the food… so many amazing dishes – all yummy AND healthy!  We went home with a stack full of recipes to take home and try.  And I think next year it will also be a bring a container to take home for lunch the next day kind of operation!   To top it off dessert was chocolate tofu mousse (really? yes. so good.) with girl scout cookies!

Many of us also went home with new fitness clothing that everyone brought from their closets – yay for the clothing swap.

Lastly we were also treated to an intimate bellydance performance by Amy Horn of Verbena Bellydance and got to try it ourselves with a little booty belly dancing tutorial!

Thanks go out of course to all the donors of Door Prize items:  Camper JLo brought some lovely bath oils, Mean Girls Massage donated two massages, West Seattle camper Jennifer Guanga brought some of her detoxifying wraps as well.

Also Freggies, an up and coming Organic Produce delivery service, donated one of their boxes.  Freggies is one of our new camp sponsors in general as well (and Trainer Melissa’s husband who operates the business is our connect ; )  A box is sold and delivered for $40 and I was actually incredibly impressed with the variety and the quantity of produce for one box.  Check them out and email the office if you need the camper discount code  ; )
