ready set activate
even with such a mild winter, spring is always anticipated and welcome. spring has definitely sprung ... so many signs of renewal are already apparent ... daylight and the beautiful light green shades of budding trees.
it’s my favorite time of the year and it just seems like everything is bubbling up with excitement and renewal.
spring also brings some of our favorite annual events that we support and participate in. giving back feels great, for me personally and for our business.
the spring fashion show at the ridgefield playhouse benefitting ann's place has become a ritual that we all look forward to. this year was as fun as we expected with 23 amazing models for hair and makeup.
a job well done for the ab experts. learn more at ridgefieldplayhouse.org and annsplace.org. and a big shout out to peggy marconi and christine o'leary!
the RVNAhealth spring breakfast was a huge success with 400 guests in attendance. It is another event we are committed to, where pete and i had the pleasure of serving coffee and morning treats to our table of ab team members.
a big thanks to theresa santoro and the many healthcare professionals who work so hard to serve our community … and another thank you to allison stockel, the best auctioneer. see all they do at rvnahealth.org.
recently i have seen so many new and unique ways to help and support others.
one great example is compassionate ridgefield, initiated by a group of residents who know that living in a compassionate community improves lives.
striving to create ripples of compassion throughout the community, the organization has created "compassion coins." more impactful than a simple "thank you," the coins are a way to personally acknowledge someone and show your admiration and respect for their kindness, compassion or generous actions.
we have chosen to acknowledge good deeds by giving 2 coins at once ... the first for an individual to enjoy, and another for them to pay it forward to someone else. order your own coins and start acknowledging people yourself at compassionateridgefield.org.
there are so many dynamic ways to activate yourself and family members ... our most personal philanthropic passions include all things animals … local organizations such as roar-ridgefield.org, daws.org, because4paws.org, pawsrescueleague.org and wildlifeincrisis.org plus a nearly endless list of large and small rescue, conservation, habitat and advocacy groups around the world.
a shout out to all of you and all that you do to enrich and benefit our communities.
rescuing a homeless dog or cat can be the best gift you give yourself ... like the newest addition to our family, a 2 year old rescue from tennessee named monty!
on another note, caring for yourself takes on a new meaning in spring ... out with the winter clothes, in with spring cleaning and outdoor activities can also mean more aches and pains when we reactivate our bodies or just plain overdo it.
how we “spa” has evolved so much over the last few years … we want it when we need it. while sometimes we just want the pampering, other times we really do need it. think of a power facial as the spring cleaning your skin needs; and when you’ve really overdone it, we’re here with the therapeutic benefits of a professional massage. consider our 3-packs for the most effective results.
we’ve just added beauty and health boosting IV drips at the ridgefield spa:
- super hydration boost
- skin, hair, nail beauty boost
- super immunity boost
- recovery and performance boost
… helpers for pre or post events and travel. our alliance with avanced speciality care (ASC) brings beth porzio, APRN directly to you at our spa for these services and more. an IV drip and botox® is a favorite pairing for many, myself included.
