The Woman’s Club of Fairfax’s fundraiser to raise awareness for Human Trafficking. We are very, very excited about this event and hope that many of you will come join us for a day of fun to raise awareness for a serious cause. The flyer is pretty self explanatory, but we are going to have a morning session of yoga 🧘‍♀️ and then meet up the street at The Ornery Brewery for beers (of course!) and good food! All proceeds from the day’s events go to Just Ask. Even if you don’t like beer, the food is fabulous and they have nice ciders and mixed drinks as well. Yes, we know....Mary Driver Downs and I did some “research” before confirmed the venue. (It was a HARD job, but somebody had to do it! )
