12/13 PARKWAY BREWING BENEFIT FOR 5 POINTS MUSIC FOUNDATION
Our great friends and partners at Parkway Brewing Company are holding a benefit this FRIDAY, December 13 for our own 5 Points Music Sanctuary! For each beer sold, $1 will go to support our foundation’s work in hearing loss advocacy! We have so many exciting programs coming your way in 2020 and this act of generosity will help us make them happen.
Music Road Company will perform. Their band members come from such diverse places as South Africa, Ecuador, Key West, Maryland and Virginia, bringing many cultural influences together to produce music without boundaries. Moving fluidly from funk to reggae, rock to afrobeat, their sound bounces from blues and soul to island dance and back again, bound together by one common ideal: Music should feel good and spread positive vibes.
HUDDLE UP MOMS Love Your Pelvis
This event is the first of a new series will take place every third Tuesday of the month. For December, Huddle Up Moms will host an educational panel focused on a multidisciplinary approach to pelvic health. Featured on the panel will be an acupuncturist, pelvic floor therapists, a chiropractor, a pelvic physiologist with exercise science, and a urogynecologist. Huddle Up Moms (H.U.M.) is a new non-profit organization aimed to educate, inspire, and empower moms of all walks of life in the Southwest Virginia.
