WOW of CT is a network of female health and wellness practitioners dedicated to supporting women and their families throughout Fairfield County. As healers and caretakers for women and families, members feel a special sense of responsibility to help further resilience and recovery in the area after the events of 12/14. To that end they created an event they hope will encourage and empower local parents who attend, while also supporting what they see as a very worthy organization dedicated to recovery for Newtown families.
