The Brush Off

When: Thursday, April 12 2018

The Blavatnik Family Foundation Wellness Center serves the caregivers staying at Ronald McDonald House New York by providing respite and critical self-care support for the mind, body and spirit. With that mission in mind, a variety of fitness classes and equipment, meditation sessions, massage and spa services, healing music classes, nutrition workshops and stress-management discussions are offered on a daily basis.

"The Brush Off" was the center's first big event; encouraging caregivers to stop by and brush off winter and refresh for spring while receiving a variety of relaxing spa services (massages, facials, etc.). Healthy snacks were served along with detoxifying juices and smoothies. DIY stations allowed caregivers to learn how to make exfoliating scrubs, essential oil room sprays and floral arrangements to welcome spring. Goodie bags included natural bristle body/face brushes as well as other self-care and pampering items. Special thanks to event donors, including Herbal Essences who generously sent gifts for all the moms!

The generous gift from the Blavatnik Family Foundation provides a home for the Integrative Wellness Program at Ronald McDonald House New York.
