Music for any mood including vibey playlists from Great Day @ Work, and a main stage dance party with GreatMastr, ft. DJ Nate da Great and DJ Trumastr

Guided DIY Activities including Mixology 101 with Jammella and DIY Collage Journals with Nicole

Bid on the silent auction online from January 8 - 23
