Growing in Jersey City is hosting its second Wellness event this weekend – GJC Pampering Day – on Sunday, May 21st at 1pm.
GJC Pampering Day takes place in a beautiful backyard in Jersey City Heights (229 Ogden Ave.) outfitted with local businesses offering pampering products and services that you can try before you buy.
Think hand massages, nutrition workshops, make-up consultations. The list goes on…check out the detailed invite.
Besides services, there will be $1400+ in raffles from local businesses. And to keep your energy up, light food and drink will be served.
A perfect excuse to get with friends or fam and spend QT together.

Go hard or go home,
