RUMSON: A WARRIOR POSE FOR PETS

BrodieBrodie, the cat for whom the animal cancer nonprofit Brodie Fund is named, is the scheduled special guest for a fundraising morning of yoga and meditation, April 23 at Rumson Presbyterian Church.

It’s being billed as an opportunity to “spend time in Downward Facing Dog, Cat Pose and all your other favorite Asanas, while raising money to help pets fighting cancer.” On the morning of Saturday, April 23, the nonprofit Brodie Fund presents a special yoga and meditation session, hosted inside Wilson Hall at First Presbyterian Church of Rumson, and dedicated to the Fund’s efforts to help families pay for cancer treatments for their beloved dogs and cats.

Yoga instructor Rebecca Zaccagnino joins Brodie Fund founder Sally Williams (plus special guest, Brodie the Cat himself) for a class that’s scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. The class ends with a meditation, and attendees are invited to enjoy locally made muffins, homemade granola bars, fruit, water, coffee, tea and chat afterward.

Cost for participating in the class is $20, with all proceeds going directly to cancer treatment and veterinary care. Raffle tickets for a Yoga Gear Prize Package are also available, priced at $5.00 each.
