The Crossover Yoga Project, based in Croton On Hudson, will hold its annual fundraiser from 2 to 5 p.m. on March 8, International Women’s Day, at Bethany Arts Community, in Ossining. CYP empowers trauma survivors and supports them in building resilience, self-awareness and self-respect. Since its launch in 2015, it has helped more than 4,200 girls at local juvenile detention centers, shelters and residential treatment centers reclaim their voices through trauma-informed yoga, mindfulness and creative art. CYP’s goal is to raise $10,000 to expand its program to meet the demand in Westchester County.

Local politicians and special guests from CYP’s programs throughout Westchester County will be in attendance, including Michael Orth, commissioner at Westchester County Department of Community Mental Health.

The main event begins at 2:30 p.m. and is open to all ticket holders. They can learn about CYP’s mission and work while enjoying wine and light hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, an art exhibit and performances by young women who will share their powerful stories and artistic expressions that have helped transform their lives as a result of CYP’s programs.

A special reception for sponsors and advocate ticket holders will begin at 2 p.m. with champagne, appetizers, and an opportunity to meet CYP’s survivors and experience their artwork.

 Cost: $30-$150. Location: Bethany Arts Community, 40 Somerstown Rd, Ossining, NY. For tickets and information, visit and search for CYP Fundraiser. CROSSOVER YOGA PROJECT.
