WWS Happenings September 2017

Healing Through Art

“Art opens the closets, airs out the cellars and attics. It brings healing.” – Julia Cameron

On September 10th we welcomed 12 mentors and mentees into our office for “Memories on Canvas” our 3rd Heart to Home session for 2017.  Everyone was asked to paint a memory, object or color that reminds them of the person in their life who was impacted by cancer.  Claudia and her mentee Camila were one of the pairs in attendance and have bonded over losing their mothers to cancer.  Claudia painted a balloon “because whenever I was given a balloon my father and I would release it into the sky and it was our way of sending a message to my mother.”  Our Heart to Home sessions are an important opportunity to create community and provide an opportunity for healing for our mentees and mentors.  Thanks again to Drica Lobo for leading us through this fabulous day!

 

Businesses Doing More

On Thursday, September 21st we held our annual Because of You party, a private appreciation event for all of our sponsors from White Light White Night.  It’s an important night for us to say thank you to all of the businesses and people who make WLWN a success.  As another way for us to show our appreciation for those who go above and beyond, we are starting a regular blog piece about Businesses Giving Back.  Check out last week’s post to see what South Bay BMW and Charles Schwab & Co. have in common when it comes to Walk With Sally.

Adopt A Family For The Holidays
