Yoga + Beer for Ellie
Words can't describe how we feel about our first event. So many emotions. So many good emotions. We are so incredibly thankful for everyone who came out to be there for our first event - Yoga + Beer for Ellie.
It was an amazing turnout and we are so grateful for all who chose to spend the evening together by giving back to sweet little Ellie. All proceeds directly benefited A Cure for Ellie, a foundation established for raising money to research and find a cure for LBSL, a rare mitochondrial disease that afflicts Ellie McGinn, a sweet 9 year-old Arlington girl.
In total, we raised $1,781! Huge thank you to Erin Sonn from Eat.Yoga.Drink for teaching an inspiring yoga class. After we finished our vinyasa flow, we headed over to Highline RxR for drinks + food!
Thank you to the Crystal City Business Improvement District for sponsoring this entire event. In addition, thank you to our incredible photographer, Ned Riley (@nedapotamus), who took the amazing photos throughout this post! Check out our Facebook page for the rest of the event photos.
