Hestia Retreat Fundraising Event and Yard Sale: Release, Restore and Renew

Hi Colleagues,

Recently I enjoyed a trip to Vashon Island to photograph a fundraising event to support the up-and-coming Hestia, a Retreat and Sanctuary for Women.  Enjoy these images from the Fundraising Event and Yard Sale: Release, Restore and Renew:

Support Hestia by contributing your time, expertise, counsel, and/or gifts:
  • Join one of Hestia's planning committees
  • Share your ideas, resources, and energy as part of Hestia's Advisory Circle
  • Help Hestia's land project
  • Give a financial gift
  • Keep current with news on Hestia's social media page
After seeing the energy in these pictures, don't you want to visit Vashon and support Hestia? View Hestia's Tea from April.

Special thanks to Valerie, Hestia co-founder, former UW Communication professor from my undergraduate days, and friend, for inviting me to participate!  Having recently graduated for my MA, I am mindful of the need for retreat, sanctuary, and solitude to regenerate.  I'm grateful to contribute!  Contact Hestia if you wish to be involved.

Thank you for reading,
