On October 9, Florida Citrus Sports will celebrate the one-year anniversary of our newest and fastest growing event, Wednesday WINE: Yoga presented by Corkcicle.
Our Wednesday WINE (Women’s Interactive Networking Events) series focuses on bringing Florida Citrus Sports members and the Orlando community as a whole together to socialize, share ideas and make connections with business and community leaders from all over Central Florida.
Since their inception in 2018, our yoga-on-the-field events have served this mission and grown the community exponentially.
“We began with between 20 and 30 women showing up for the event,” Florida Citrus Sports events manager Shannon DeAraujo said. “But now have over a hundred women and men showing up every month.”
Wednesday WINE: Yoga tickets are free for Florida Citrus Sports members and $20 for guests. Each event begins with a one-hour yoga session on the Camping World Stadium field and is followed by a happy hour and hors d’oeuvres in the Varsity Club, an exclusive event space located at the south end of the stadium.
“The amount of people who continually come up to me at the happy hour and express how much they look forward to the event every month is incredible,” events director Carlyn Tribble said. “It’s a great feeling when you can put on an event that that not only builds a community, but continually strengthens it.”
The event has even garnered the attention of local and national businesses, as Corkcicle, YogaMix Orlando, Fresh Kitchen, Kendra Scott, SheCar, CayCakes, and Rukus have all participated in supporting the event.
“The majority of the event’s growth has come organically through word of mouth,” customer relations director Stephanie Marrone. “We now have local organizations wanting to get involved and wanting to be a part of this community, and we’re so grateful for their support.”
