Come Celebrate NM Men’s Wellness 35th Anniversary

New Mexico Men’s Wellness will hold its 35th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser at the Center for Spiritual Living, 2801 Louisiana Blvd in Albuquerque, on September 14th at 6 pm. You and your partners/spouses/friends are all invited. Tickets are $35/couple (any two people coming together) and $20/single.

The evening will begin with hors d’oeuvres and BYOB cocktails at 6 pm followed by a catered, full buffet dinner featuring almond crusted tilapia, curried beef, jerk chicken, roasted veggies and much more, mostly gluten free.

Auctioneer Michael McKittrick will conduct live and silent auctions for the benefit of NMMW’s outreach to younger men. The one and only Barry Cooney will be our Master of Ceremonies, including an honoring of NMMW’s past presidents. And, Marc Kolman’s magical band, the Chameleons, will provide the music for your listening and dancing pleasure. It promises to be a night you won’t want to miss!
