Join us for our 2019 wellness weekend!
Here We Grow is a safe space to explore what wellness looks like for black women. This year we will have 50 attendees at our signature event, giving them a dive deep into conversations on mental health, stress-relief, and emotional wellness, guided by mental health professionals.
The goal of the event is rest, rejuvenation and realignment.
As one previous attendee has said, “I can now mark my life in two sections — before the retreat and after!” Check out our video of last year’s retreat.
Now in its fifth year, the #HereWeGrow community continues to work between retreats to preserve the gains made at each getaway, through our private online support group and in-person meet-ups. The need for this space is palpable. Each year, tickets sell out within days; in 2019, 47 spots sold out in four hours!
This year, we’ll be vacationing in San Juan, Puerto Rico November 6-10.
We believe that attending a wellness weekend should be within reach for the average woman.
We make it a priority to keep ticket price and hotel costs low, making it more affordable and attainable for the average working woman. We also offer payment plans and roommate arrangement to spread costs even further.
As a result, we consider our sponsors invaluable to our mission. It is because of your contributions that we are able to provide a high-quality event year after year.
We are looking for companies who would like to provide financial sponsorship and in-kind donations for this year’s attendees.
- Excursion Sponsor ($1000) — Be a part of our attendees’ Puerto Rico excursion, a day of exploring the island and its culture.
- Reception OR Brunch Sponsor ($500) – Help us welcome attendees to the island or wish them safe travel by sponsoring either our welcome reception or closing brunch.
- Table Talk Sponsor ($100) – Be part of the conversation all weekend as your brand is front and center during our Table Talk sessions.
Each collaboration is not just a weekend-long commitment but a long-term partnership designed to elevate both brands.
In-Kind Donation (Swag bag sponsors)
For product sponsors, we are looking for companies who want to partner with us long after the weekend is over.
We’re curating new swag boxes that we will be mailing to attendees BEFORE the retreat, to get them ready for the island and allow them to begin sharing their favorite items prior to leaving. (They’ll be prompted to share photos/video of their boxes for additional chances to win prizes on the trip.)
Swag bag sponsors will receive:
- 2 social shares on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (6 total) + mentions from attendees
- Inclusion in our weekly newsletter (1,000 subscribers devoted to wellness + self-care)
- Inclusion in the attendee swag boxes
Can I just say, from the moment I linked up with Tara, my business took off. Who knew that God lined everything up just right. Now when it comes to Tara. She is not a “I got what I needed” type of person. I have never met Tara personally, but you would think she has known me forever. She is able to read an email and tell that you are going through something. So not only have I gain business by working with Tara. I can honestly say we are friends, and I don’t use that word loosely.– Millicent Richardson, owner, Addictive Apothecary, 3x sponsor
