Not only have we have an amazing showing of support from local bars and restaurants, but businesses of all kinds are getting involved in our project to support the NC Jaycee Burn Center! Thank you to each and every person involved! Take a look at some of the offerings from various local, state and national companies! Here they are, in alphabetical order:
Barnhill’s Books, Wine, Art and Gifts opened 3 and a half years ago and is located in the beautiful historic West End district. Barnhill’s presents some of the treasures of Winston-Salem and North Carolina. Local authors and artists, North Carolina wines with daily tastings, and all manner of gifts including games, jewelry, puzzles and more make this a unique spot in Winston-Salem well worth your investigation.

Recently, the Winston-Salem Jaycees went on a zipline tour with Carolina Ziplines — it was an event not to be missed. Everyone that went had a blast and those that didn’t, wish they had! We’re hoping to do a night tour sometime in the near future. Carolina Ziplines covers 26 acres of land that belonged to Revolutionary War hero Joshua Cox, who was also the great grandfather of RJ Reynolds! Carolina Ziplines is the original zipline tour in North Carolina, possibly the East Coast. Thanks go out to the folks at Carolina Ziplines for their fantastic hospitality while we were there, and for donating a a free zipline tour with discounts for additional guests as a door prize!

Girls Fight Back is a national program that holds a lot of personal meaning to me, even though I’m a guy. This is a women’s self-defense program that gives a female perspective on cultivating a healthy attitude and awareness toward self-defense with practical how-to instructions should the situation ever arise. There are both seminars and weekend intensive hands-on workshops in FAST self-defense training for those that want to further their self-defense training. One of our own Winston-Salem Jaycees is a national trainer for Girls Fight Back and the Band Aid crew is grateful to Girls Fight Back for providing a tremendous prize pack for this year’s Band Aid for Burn Survivors!
Check out the Girls Fight Back website for more information on their programs!

I think everyone knows about the North Carolina Zoo — and if not, now’s your chance! North Carolina Zoo is undergoing a lot of updates lately. They’ve added the Lemur Island, renovated and revitalized much of the Africa exhibit, and there are many more updates on the horizon. Another new addition includes “We’re Back!” — a dinosaur exhibit! While there, be sure to check out the Acacia Station where you can get eye-level with the giraffes and even feed them! There are tons of special events going on, as well as behind the scenes talks with zookeepers. This year, we’re grateful to receive a family four-pack of tickets to the NC Zoo as a Band Aid door prize! Thank you guys so much!

Van Davis Aveda is located in Thruway Shopping Center in Winston-Salem. I know a number of people that go here and they love it. If you ask someone that’s been to Van Davis Aveda, you’re likely to hear that their service is great and everyone there is really nice. One of the great things about Aveda is that in both their salon and spa, they like to keep everything “green”, using products with organic plant-based ingredients whenever possible. With the season changing, Fall semesters getting started, and the holidays on the horizon, now is the perfect time to take a moment to relax and rejuvenate with these well-trained, friendly professionals.
For more information about Van Davis Aveda or to make a reservation, please see their website.
