Cathy Epperson, National VP for Arbonne, is willing to donate 30% of sales from a Women’s Racquetball Show we are putting on in Olympia at Cheyenne’s home. This will be a “Girl’s Night” along with a great presentation of the Arbonne products which include everything from better/healthier make-up to nutritional supplements. There is no pressure to come buy anything, but just come join us for a nice evening and get better educated on caring for your body. Refreshments will be provided. Anyone and everyone is welcome. A flyer is attached to this email!
As you might have heard, Karen Jaskolka hosted a Poker Night to raise money for our WPRO fundraising efforts. Thirty people attended and had a BLAST! Everyone is begging for more so we will be hosting a second event sometime in the fall, so keep your eyes peeled if this is something that interests you.
How you can help bring the WPRO to WA:
Collect your change in a zip-lock and donate at the next Women’s Event!
Purchase a Women’s Racquetball Hoodie or T-shirt (sold at almost every event this year).
Send suggestions to Cheyenne for Corporate Sponsors.
