It’s time to paint the town red! Kick off your night with a stop at Clayton Gray Home for First Friday!
Now that the holiday decorations are put away, the New Years hangover has worn off, and your stomach has recovered from all of that SuperBowl food, it’s time to focus on love. Our First Friday has something for everyone to love. As always, Clayton Gray Home likes to focus on local small businesses and charities in our community. We partner together to network and broaden our clientele base. The First Friday happy hour/open house type setting is a perfect way to shop, try some new food and drinks, and learn about local charities. It’s love for the body, mind and soul. Join us this Friday, February 6th from 6–9.
The February charity spotlight will shine down on High Risk Hope. Founded by Heather Barrow, High Risk Hope is a for purpose organization that provides support, encouragement, information and resources to women and families who are experiencing a high risk pregnancy resulting in hospital bed rest, potential premature birth and neonatal intensive care after delivery. High Risk Hope targets hospitals with designated level III NICUs, meaning they admit women with the highest-risk pregnancies and treat the most critical premature infants. The majority of their 150+ volunteer workforce has either been on hospital bed rest or is the parent of a NICU graduate. High Risk Hope provides bed rest baskets to meet the needs of high risk OB patients and NICU nap sacks containing items they need to survive their infant’s stay in the NICU. High Risk Hope even helps families who have experienced a loss by guiding them to the best organizations for bereavement and grief support. Come learn more about this fantastic organization and how you can help. To help kick off their 4th anniversary celebration on 2/16, High Risk Hope’s Books for Babies, bring in new or gently used children’s books and receive an extra raffle ticket for every book that you donate. You can also make a monetary donation to the book drive, or simply shop at Clayton Gray Home and 20% of all sales from First Friday will go to benefit High Risk Hope.
Does your New Year’s resolution need a little resolve? We will have Swami Juice in house handed out samples of their fabulous juice mixes! Located at the corner of Bay to Bay and MacDill, Swami specializes in cold-pressed juices that are raw, local and alive. Swami also offers juice cleanses, superfood smoothies, acai bowls and more! Swami juice is the juice with OM! Their goal is to make customers aware of what the body and mind need for nourishment to run at optimal levels, and what you stand to gain from doing so. Millions of people today are nutritionally out of balance. It is these imbalances that lead to poor health and worse. Swami believes it is not limited to bad nutrition, more so, not enough good nutrition. Natural, whole foods are the best means of delivering vitamins, minerals, essential nutrients/a-nutrients and living enzymes. In today’s convenience and price driven society much of these bodily requirements have fallen by the wayside. It’s a Swami revolution.….ride the juice wave!
