The team at Santa Cruz CORE Fitness+ Rehab an integrative wellness center, celebrated their third anniversary on Saturday, June 30th and donated 100% of the grand prize raffle proceeds to Second Harvest.
The action-packed afternoon was filled with informative demonstrations by Santa Cruz CORE staff and amazing music by Mr. Cooper (the adorable all girls band), Dressed in Roses and other local musicians. Every half hour one of the raffle prizes donated by generous local vendors was drawn. The grand prizes, which included a year’s worth of massages and two lifestyle makeovers, were given out just before the event wrapped up. The totals are still being tallied but at last count Santa Cruz CORE raised over 10,000 meals for their neighbors in need.
