DARIEN, Conn. -- The Darien YMCA will host its inaugural Holiday Boutique on Monday, Dec. 5, in the Y's lobby. The event will benefit revive, the Darien Y's cancer rehabilitation program.
The boutique will host Darien-based vendors, each of which will donate 10 percent of the days’ profits to the YMCA on behalf of revive.
Holiday Boutique will include the following vendors: Arbonne (botanically-based wellness and beauty products); Beautycounter (safe cosmetics for women and families); JB Aromas (organic essential oils, botanically-based affordable skin care products); Jea Jea Sport (unique performance apparel specifically crafted for women); Luckyoga (a playful lifestyle brand of apparel that inspires a healthy and balanced life); India Hicks (spirited lifestyle collection spiked with adventure); Malas by E (a collection of prayer/meditation beads inspired by love, lore and nature); and The Funkie Hippie (a collective shop of unique, handmade and one-of-a-kind gifts).
The Darien YMCA’s revive is a three-month progressive health and fitness program designed to transition cancer patients from the conclusion of treatment to a renewed stamina for day-to-day living, according to a release from the Darien Y.
Dr. Dipti Josi, the Y’s Integrative medical coach, provides initial consultation and monitoring for participants throughout the duration of the program, which includes a complimentary three-month membership to the Darien Y, access to the Wellness Center, pools, group fitness classes and therapeutic programs, the release said.
Also, all revive participants receive an hour of personal training each week with one of the Y’s certified cancer exercise specialist trainers.
Revive is offered free of charge and is made possible through fundraising events like Holiday Boutique and through generous donations from the community.
The event will be from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
