TOMORROW: Shameless self-promotion meets matchmaking!
Connecting Businesses and Nonprofits to Make a Difference
This will be a terrific chance for businesses to say who they are, describe a sample of their social good program, and how they want to help nonprofits in 2020. And for area nonprofits to say who they are and where they need help in 2020. Great connections. Great energy. Great fun!
Everyone who attends this fun event will have the opportunity for a one-minute speech to promote their business or organization.
October 16th @ 8AM-9:30AM

The Sweet Spot Sugaring Studio: Voted Best of Seattle 2018 & 2019!
Why should you visit us? We are the most award winning sugaring studio in Seattle, Washington. While we specialize in sugaring- a natural alternative to waxing, we offer a variety of skin services for all genders and races!
When Lara Olsha’s mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, Lara began looking for a way to assist women with cancer. She learned about the American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program and although she had to become a licensed esthetician in order to volunteer, the positive impact she would have on a community in need was enough for her to pursue it. It was during this challenging period that Lara discovered her passion for sugaring!
It grew from a small passion project, into Seattle’s first sugaring studio! The Sweet Spot is a homage to her mother.

Sfingiday proudly supports over 100 small production artisans, offering a diverse selection of original paintings, archival prints, handcrafted jewelry, ceramic gifts, aromatic body care, environmental friendly household goods, genuine leather accessories and pieces that defy conventional descriptions.
While we have a strong focus on local producers, distance won’t keep us from tracking down unique hand-crafted items. We currently feature artists from the United States, Mexico, the UK, and Canada. Our shop is ever-evolving. Stagnation, after all, is unpleasant.
Pop in and connect with us. We love a good story and can’t wait to share our love of art with you.
