Sanar Wellness Institute Opening Reception

On November 2nd, co-founders Kate Keisel-Caballero, Gabriela Celeiro, and Jenna Pannepacker opened the doors of the Sanar Wellness Institute. From the experienced board to its incredibly dedicated founders, staff, and interns,Sanar endeavors to provide transformational healing services for survivors of gender-based violence including human trafficking, sexual assault, and intimate-partner violence.  
The highly-anticipated grand opening was preceded by an opening reception Sunday, November 1st, attended by nearly 100 supportive friends, family, colleagues, and community members. Attendees, enthusiastic about Sanar’s establishment in New Jersey, participated in event activities aimed at mirroring some of the therapeutic support practices that Sanar will offer in its Creative Expressions groups including: the creation of a community-painted mandala, gratitude board contributions, and dancing. In addition to these activities, Sanar hosted a silent auction showcasing the donated art of Newark-based artists,Jackson De Almeida and Meghan Donnelly.  

Thank you to all who donated to our Surviving to Thriving Campaign and to those of you who joined us in celebrating our opening in Newark!
