Body Mind Spirit Guide Festival – The Body Mind Spirit Guide held a holistic Festival with 120 vendors participating. They sponsored S.O.U.L. as the charity they would be helping. We were given a table at the entrance to promote S.O.U.L. where we offered bottled water for a donation and passed out literature and talked to people about S.O.U.L. In the vendor room we had a table where we sold merchandise and could further spread the word about the purpose of S.O.U.L. There was a silent auction held in which 100% of the proceeds went to S.O.U.L. The Guide will sponsor S.O.U.L. at there next two festivals.
