Acupressure comes to senior center

Acupressure is now available at the Sno-Valley Senior Center in Carnation.

Using the same techniques as acupuncture but without the needles, this ancient healing method is said to bring balance to body, mind and spirit. Acupressure reduces tension, increases circulation and enables the body to relax deeply.

Instructor Sharee Clark offers acupressure at the center, by appointment, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. Cost is $20. For more information, call the center at (425) 333-4152. The center is located at 4610 Stephens Ave. in Carnation, a half-block behind Carnation City Hall.

Clark has been a stuntwoman, stand-up comedian and television producer, director and writer. However, coming from a family of healers, she is most proud of her work helping people and animals.

Wine benefit raises Camp Korey funds

Donors raised more than $1.4 million for Camp Korey at Carnation Farm, the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps, and the Washington Wines Education Foundation, during the 17th Annual Washington Wines Festival Weekend, held July 11 and 12.

More than 300 guests tried fine wines, dined on gourmet fare from some of Seattle’s most renowned chefs and enjoyed a private concert from Grammy-nominated Lisa Loeb as well as a rare opportunity to see country stars Amy Grant and Vince Gill share the stage in an exclusive performance.

A live auction held Saturday afternoon raised more than $400,000 directly for Camp Korey, which opened its doors to its first campers on Monday, July 21.

Next year’s wine benefit event is already being planned. For more information, visit
