Join us for our Menopause Mixer evening for a fun night of learning how to embrace “the change” and navigate menopause. Eramosa Physiotherapy and Guelph Women’s Health present: Menopause Mixer. An evening to empower women with information, fashion and fun. All in support of Guelph Wellington Women and Crisis (GWIC).
As attendees sip on their favourite beverage and enjoy some hor d’oeuvres, they can enjoy watching a fashion show filled with stylish, comfortable activewear from ONE TOOTH (Guelph) that can be worn for many different occasions.
Our event will also include an expanded vendor market for attendees to shop from local small businesses. In addition, educational booths will be set up with other healthcare providers who can support women with peri-menopause/menopause symptoms.
Menopause Mixer is a dedicated fundraiser where all event proceeds will once again be donated to Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis. This local community-based organization provides services to women and their children experiencing domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking.
