It is finally winter here in the mountains and we are serving up lots of steaming beverages and made-from-scratch soups to accompany hot gooey grilled sammies. Come on in and cure your cabin fever!
Last year, over 300 such walks were held across the country and tens of thousands of men (women and children too!) put on high heeled shoes as a symbolic gesture to walk in solidarity with women. This visually riveting community event is a great opportunity for your business to show support for the men who are taking a stand against violence. It is also a great way to let the community know you care about women’s issues and are willing to take a stand against sexual violence.
Join hundreds of other outstanding men in our community who are not afraid to Walk the Walk!
We will have Hot cross Buns, Cookies, and lots of festive Cupcakes to celebrate the Vernal Equinox, Easter and Spring Break!
