Cincinnati is Honoring Women this Valentine’s Day – February 14, 2013

Contemporary Arts Center PRESS RELEASE

Valet Coffee is proud to Honor Women this Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013 from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, by highlighting several of Cincinnati’s local life coaches and authors. What better place to do that than in the heart of the city at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC)—a museum founded by three young women nearly 75 years ago, and now housed in a world-famous building designed by a woman! The event is free, open to the public, offers music and refreshments, and is right inside the CAC lobby doors. Please join us as we celebrate women!

There are tools and techniques from the coaches and authors that are helpful for women to create and care for themselves and their families more consciously. There will be book signings, workshop and coaching information, music to surround you, along with other items to browse and buy.

To offer their support to women everywhere, Valet Coffee and the other participants will share a portion of their proceeds with The American Heart Association, in anticipation of helping families create healthier lives. You can show your support by buying a cup of coffee or smoothie, a book, sessions with one of the coaches, or simply by dropping by the CAC.
