As a new business, having only been opened independently since December, Local Wellness Ponte Vedra looks to hold its first public event with a Galentine’s event Feb. 15 from 5 to 9 p.m.
Owner Lauren Cowgill encourages all women in the community to bring their best friends and enjoy some champagne and food while indulging in some well-deserved self-care.
According to Cowgill, everyone wants and has the right to feel their best and she wants Local Wellness to be an outlet people can depend on to help get them there.
Other than the social aspects of the event, there will also be certain Galentine’s specials that guests can take advantage of, including $30 Cryofacials, half off discounted IV treatments, $10 per unit of Jeuveau, which is a new form of Botox and $20 vitamin injections.
There will also be special pricing for Celluma light therapy, microneedling and CoolSculpting.
“Definitely booking during the event will allow you to get that pricing that you will not find very often,” Cowgill said.
Having been a wedding planner for 18 years, Cowgill understands what it takes to host and run a proper social event.
“The events in my head never stop, and I’m always thinking of fun things that we could do, and the Galentine’s is just one of those,” Cowgill said. “It will serve as a pre-launch to some of the things we’re adding such as CoolSculpting and Jeuveau.”
According to Cowgill, the idea for the Galentine’s event came about following the Jacksonville Jaguars home playoff victory against the Los Angeles Chargers a couple of weeks ago.
“My husband and I were over at Chubby’s and I just knew we were going to win that game, so before the third quarter we came over here to turn on the cryo and get it cold, and after we won, we invited a bunch of people over from Chubby’s and did a big group selfie with about 15 people in the cryo,” Cowgill said. “People were saying how the atmosphere was so nice in here, especially at night so we decided to put something together. It is going to be fun to see how big this can take off.”
The event is free and open to the public, but anyone interested is asked to RSVP by calling 904-473-5022. Local Wellness Ponte Vedra is located at 2 Fairfield Blvd., Suite 9, in Ponte Vedra Beach.
