Women in a quick-paced society put on many hats, and Paulette Schafer, creator of the Women’s Wellness Fair and Expo, feels women typically look past their very own wants.
“I have seen hundreds of women over the years not take care of themselves either emotionally physically. It’s very sad to me how we as women have gotten away from what matters and we need to take care of us,” Schafer stated.
Schafer has been a motivational speaker and therapeutic massage therapist for 14 years and felt empowered to offer again to the women of McPherson.
A good friend requested Schafer to offer a small presentation and that constructive expertise satisfied her to share the identical encouragement in a bigger means.
The result’s the Women’s Wellness Fair and Expo from midday to five p.m. Sept. 9 at Perkins Restaurant, 2111 E. Kansas Ave. in McPherson.
Tickets are $20, lunch is $7.50 additional, and they’re out there at the door or by calling 620-241-6347.
Schafer’s objective for charging $20 is to provide again a number of the proceeds to Mt. Hope Sanctuary.
“I think it’s important if you’re having a women’s fair, you should give back to the women in your community,” she stated.
Seminars will embrace subjects like women’s health, and the occasion may even consists of mild-hearted elementes like purchasing distributors, raffle drawings, a blood strain sales space, goodie luggage and extra.
“It’s wonderful how this has all worked out. It was easy because women need this,” she stated.
She needed so as to add a number of feminine distributors as a result of she felt that these women would relate to the women attending the occasion the perfect.
“All my vendors, they all have full time jobs, or they work at home and or their house moms or wives and they sell things on the side to pay their bills which is neat. I didn’t go for the big businesses, I didn’t go down town, I went for ladies who would represent the everyday woman,” Schafer stated. “I had one lady say who is with a vendor, ‘I want to thank you for putting this on because this is how I pay my daughters medical bills.’ I thought, OK. This is all worth it if I can help one mom better her life, then this is going to be good.”
