Before we dive into this week’s events all over the gorgeously springy (well, we are hoping…) Garden State, we NEED to put out a call-to-action for all goddesses (i.e. every yogini in NJ).
On Thursday night, Camaroha Sutra & Oriana LaMarca Designs are presenting an incredible event in Asbury Park at the one and only Parlor Gallery on Cookman Avenue:
Goddess & Glam – An Evening Of Art Fundraiser at Parlor Gallery benefiting Threads 4 Care
The event runs from 6 PM to 930 PM, with a fashion show beginning at 7:30 PM.
Camaroha Sutra & Oriana LaMarca Design have carefully curated the event to involve the most dynamic, inventive, generous, and creative legends in the area.
If you are able to make it, please SHOW UP and support these incredible humans!
Now without further ado, here are the events you need to attend:
