Open house at Soul Care on Friday celebrates two milestones

Soul Care Urban Retreat Center will be hosting an open house on Friday, October 29 from 4-7p. In addition to marking its two years of operation, owner Kelly Skinner will celebrate her 50th birthday at 507 South Broadway Avenue on the second floor in the PNC Bank building in Urbana.

"At the heart of it all, Soul Care is about taking care of people," Skinner wrote in the event's formal invitation, which also says there will be plenty of smiles and high fives to go around. "We would like to say "thank you" to the community, our customers, and friends who have supported us through our last two years in business."

There will be a special presentation recognizing partners and founding members, and information sessions on self-care and spiritual technology. The event is free and open to the general public. Attendees will also receive gifts and can enter to win door prizes. A charcuterie, birthday cake, wine, non-alcoholic drinks, and other signature beverages will be available.

Following the current indoor gathering mandates by the state, masks will be required to attend the event. While not necessary, advance registration can be done online for the event.
