Raleigh, NC, January 10, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The Raleigh Butterfly Life, located at 3512-A Wade Ave. is dedicated to helping women live a healthier lifestyle. Butterfly Life is a revolutionary 30-minute fitness franchise designed specifically for women to achieve a healthier overall body and mind. In addition to helping women live a healthier lifestyle, Raleigh Club Owners, Sunita and Joseph Shouse have joined forces with their club members to support a local non-profit, the Wake County Women's Center.
The Women's Center of Wake County, Inc. started over twenty years ago as a grass roots movement to meet the needs of women re-entering the community from prison. Over the course of the years, the Center has responded to the changing needs of women, expanding and providing services for women in the community. Over the last 12 years, the Center has shifted focus in response to the most critical needs of women, addressing the growing issue of homelessness for women with children and single women.
In an effort to support this ever present issue of homelessness Sunita and Joseph Shouse put up a tree filled with stars representing the needs of the women and children in their community. Members who wanted to be a "Star Sponsor" picked a star and put the unwrapped gift under the tree. On December 11, the Raleigh Butterfly Life held their 1st annual Holiday Social where not only members were recognized but the club presented all the gifts to Deborah Harrell Meehan, President of the Board of the Women's Center of Wake County. The gifts will be given out to the women and children during the Center's Holiday Party on December 17. The gifts totaled upward of $750.
"We were overwhelmed with the generosity and graciousness of our members who continue to bless the lives of others in the community. These members are also the reason why we are where we need to be - in a place of selfless serving," said Sunita.
