The first Causes for Community Carlsbad (C3), held on Friday November 29, raised over $1500 (and counting!). Over 30 people attended the evening gentle yoga class, followed by snacks and sangria, at Carlsbad Village Yoga and Fitness studio. Raffle prizes and silent auction gifts were donated by businesses in the community, including Hennessey’s, Mas Fina Cantina, Ocean Sky Beads, Lost Abbey, The Danish Bakery, The Running Center, Floating Yogis, Latitude 33˚, Ocean Blo Salon and The Coolest Shoes in California.
The c3 event was held to help support Nesha Cameron in her battle against stage 3 breast cancer. Nesha has been undergoing chemotherapy for the past year and is looking to complement her treatment with naturopathic medicine which will help make the chemotherapy more effective, and reduce the side effects of what is a rather harsh treatment. The treatment costs $5,000 and all money donated will go directly to Nesha to support her treatment. Donations are still being accepted online here or at Carlsbad Village Yoga and Fitness studio.
The silent auction will continue until Friday December 7, so you still have a chance to bid on Brooks running shoes, Lost Abbey beer and a Hennessey’s gift card, jewelry from Ocean Sky Beads, and a yoga mat from Lululemon.
Causes for Community Carlsbad events will continue to be held in the months with a fifth Friday.The next C3 event will be held on Friday March 29, 2013. Stay tuned for details!
