August 1, 2019


An introduction to The Desire Map: a guide to creating goals with soul. Choosing to lean into the feelings you, to your core, want to feel is one of the most powerful things you can do with your life. The Desire Map workshops, based on the best seller by Danielle LaPorte, take you through that process. In this introductory workshop, participants are taken on a guided experience to discover the way they most want to feel and are given an opportunity to tap into their inner guide—we are all already our own “guru,” and this process charts the course to getting there. You have a say in your life; feeling good increases your flexibility, resiliency, effectiveness, and magnetism. Less striving. More living.

Please note: Each ticket includes one happy hour drink, or a non-alcoholic drink, of your choice. Drinks and mingling will take place from 5:30pm-6:00pm, and the class itself will run from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Students will also receive 10% off dinner at Nox the day of class.

Fun and Games Night Fundraiser

August 2, 2019


Sookie is a 4 ½ years old terrier/maltese mix. She loves walks, treats, and cuddles on the couch. Her first owner was a hoarder who neglected Sookie. When she came to Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions, she had infections in both ears, was undernourished, had no fur from her neck down, sensitive skin, and cataracts in both eyes. Before she is adopted, we would like to give Sookie her cataract surgery.
Cornell Veterinary Hospital will do her surgery for $4,000. Rescued Treasures is an all-volunteer non-profit, so we have to raise the money before Sookie can have her surgery
