YogaCAN Fundraiser for Cancer Alliance of Naples
F our leading local yoga teachers will come together for YogaCAN to raise funds for the Cancer Alliance of Naples, at 11 a.m., March 29, at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. Inspired by a benefit class and silent auction that Bala Vinyasa Yoga (BVY) of Naples held for the alliance in fall 2013 when one of its students was diagnosed with breast cancer, the event features a benefit class slated to be led by Kiersten Mooney, from BVY, Michael Schaeffer, from Yoga Loft, Jacqueline Gleason, from Naples Yoga Center, and Carla Olla, from Love Yoga.
“Since that event [that raised nearly $35,000], the idea has resonated that the larger Naples yoga community is also touched by this disease, and might welcome the chance to support this outstanding organization,” says Mooney. “My hope is for this to be a day when the local yoga community can come together for the greater good.”
A silent auction will be held before and after the collaborative class that will be held on the facility’s beautiful grounds.
