It's the time of year to be inside with good people, good nibbles, and good music. Come get cozy with the sweet tunes of Anna B in a lovely heritage massage studio. The massage table becomes a buffet and we fill the space up with good relaxation vibes, and a dash of magic, for the New Year.
Refreshments will be provided - just bring yourself and a donation for the very awesome Vancouver Women's Health Collective. Donations of clean socks, underwear, winter clothing, or cash donations in any amount are all appreciated! Donations by cash or cheque will receive an official tax receipt.
