    Come celebrate Asheville’s eclectic and queer-affirming culture at one or all of six family-friendly drag shows organized by Z Wood Media, LLC and hosted by Banks Ave. Beer and wine sales as well as drinks and snacks for the kids for purchase. We are hoping to have face painting and balloon shaping as well. We are trying out best to make these events FREE to the community. The performer line-up will be announced the Wed before each Saturday via a Facebook event posted at https://www.facebook.com/zwoodmedia

    We are still $800 away from our goal to cover costs to pay performers and DJs. If you are interested in being a sponsor, contact zwood.writer@gmail.com.

    Events are rain or shine, and parents have discretion regarding staying for a rain/indoor event with younger, unvaccinated children.

    Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
