The Sunset Social caters to a wide variety of attendees, allowing non-yoga participants to show their support for the cause. YogaCAN is hosted on Sunday, April 28th at the Naples Beach Hotel, and will be followed by a live auction and fresh food and beverages supplied by several local restaurants and caterers. A kid’s yoga class will be offered simultaneously to the main event with supervision and fun activities for younger ages. YogaCAN is a rain or shine event; in the case of poor weather, yoga will be held in a ballroom at the Naples Beach Hotel.

Joel Waltzer founded YogaCAN five years ago after losing his wife Jane to breast cancer. Beginning as JaneCAN, the event was originally created as an opportunity for family, friends, and community to support Jane and raise money for the Cancer Alliance of Naples. Following Jane’s passing, her legacy lives on through the annual YogaCAN event. Since its beginning in 2014, YogaCAN has raised over $300,000 for local families in need of financial assistance during cancer treatment.

100% of YogaCAN’s proceeds are donated to the Cancer Alliance of Naples (CAN), a spectacular local organization whose mission is to offer non-medical financial support to families battling cancer. CAN provides financial aid, resources, and support to help cancer patients and their families avoid eviction, ensure lights and water stay on, provide gas and food cards, and other need based assistance during cancer treatment.

YogaCAN 2019 is in search of additional sponsorships and auction items. If you or your company would like to sponsor the event or donate an auction item, please contact lisa@naplespowerplate.com or jtmole@me.com.
