Ponte Vedra Wellness Center to hold fourth annual wellness fair on Sept. 14


For the fourth year in a row, the Ponte Vedra Wellness Center will be hosting a wellness fair on Thursday, Sept. 14, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the Ponte Vedra Wellness Center in cooperation with the First Atlantic Bank, the event also celebrates the Wellness Center’s 13th year of operation in the Ponte Vedra community. The event is free and open to the public and will benefit Mission House of Jacksonville Beach.

In addition to food and music, this year’s wellness fair will feature a variety of local wellness and health care providers. Each wellness table will offer a complimentary service or special offer to those in attendance, such as chair massages, postural screenings, fitness evaluations and more. Metro Diner and Peterbrooke Chocolatier of Ponte Vedra Beach will be offering treats, and Kona Ice will be on hand with fruit-flavored shaved-ice. Once wellness fair guests visit all the table-top displays, they will be automatically entered to win raffle prizes, donated by local businesses. While food, services, and raffle tickets are complimentary, a donation to benefit Mission House is requested.

“I am honored to be celebrating 13 years, and I know that our success is due to the support of this community and of our patients,” said Ponte Vedra Wellness Center owner Dr. Erika Hamer. “This is the fourth year for the wellness fair, and we are really excited about the diversity in wellness services this year. This family-friendly event is a great way to connect with the local health care community as well as highlight that there are many paths that lead a person to wellness. We are thrilled to have the support of First Atlantic Bank, allowing us to hold the event in their parking lot and excited to have Metro Diner and Peterbrooke offering food and samples this year. Everything will be free of charge, but we are hoping those attending will be inspired to give a donation to Mission House as a way to give back to our community.”
