ADVOCATE HARBOUR Thirty-five ladies enjoyed a spa day here recently, but they were not the only beneficiaries. The event raised $1,100 for two valuable community causes.

Both the school hot lunch program and the expansion project at Bayview Memorial Health Centre received $550 from the fundraising event, which organizer Sarah Clarke deemed a tremendous success.

A lot of ladies just need a day to themselves, she said. We have one rule and that is no kids and no men are allowed, unless they are volunteering, and thats worked out great.

Services offered included shoulder massages, therapeutic touch, reflexology, eyebrow waxing and more, such as tarot card reading and handwriting analysis.

The event moved from the fire hall to the school this year, in an effort to allow more bookings thanks to increased space. The move proved a wise one, according to Clarke, who said she hoped to have the same venue available next year.

While satisfied with the level of improvement this year, she said there is always room for more progress.

I appreciate all the feedback Ive been getting from everyone, so next year we can improve, she said.
