The 60th Annual Castroville Artichoke Food & Wine Festival Gives Back to the Community through its 12 Charity Partners

The Castroville Artichoke Food & Wine Festival not only provides the community with a wealth of fun and learning every year, it gives back to the community through its dozen charity partners.

Castroville, CA, May 09, 2019 — The Castroville Artichoke Food & Wine Festival not only provides the community with a wealth of fun and learning every year, it gives back to the community through its dozen charity partners.

The 60th annual festival takes place June 1-2, 2019 at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center in Monterey and continues the legacy of celebrating the iconic artichoke and region known as the “Artichoke Center of the World.”

For almost six decades, the Artichoke Festival has been dedicated to informing and exciting festival attendees about the unique qualities of artichokes including farming, harvest, and preparation to demonstrate how the artichoke industry has influenced the history of Monterey County. And now, as a 501c3 organization, the purpose remains the same with an emphasis on giving back to the local community.

“We look forward to the Artichoke Festival each year because the event paints a clear picture of how this community comes together to support one another,” said Diana McClean, senior director of marketing at Ocean Mist Farms and board member for the Castroville Artichoke Food & Wine Festival. “The purpose of this organization aligns directly with Ocean Mist Farms’ values, which is part of the reason we enjoy sponsoring this annual event.”

Empowerment Company Launched to Help People Find Love, Health and Wealth

Medizate, a newly launched empowerment company, offers the tools to help Americans achieve their personal goals – whether it is to ask for a raise at their job, find true love or become their ideal weight.

Long Island, NY, November 04, 2013 — Medizate, a new company that provides empowerment tools that can help develop confidence, self-love, health and wealth, was launched October 1, 2013 by two Long Island psychologists, Yvonne Pratt and Sheila Santi. The company, through its website, www.medizate.com, provides affordable, positive therapeutic tools for the mind and body — unique meditation, subliminal and hypnotic CDs and downloads.

Empowerment Pods were created in subliminal message format to target specific goal areas such as confidence, assertiveness, health, wealth, self-love and other improvement areas. The messages combined with soothing, well-crafted music to specifically enhance each goal area. This allows the listener to go through their day while these positive messages are deeply absorbed, facilitating positive change and growth in the selected goal area. Guided Meditations are combined with relaxation and breathing components for a unique and complete meditative journey for listeners to explore and create their own healing.

Yvonne asserts “I see and experience life as a spiritual journey made up of many layers (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual) which appear at times to be conflicting and confusing. My work is a reflection of the experiences and knowledge I have gained on my continuing journey of self-actualization. I believe we are all one — connected, however separate entities on this physical plane. If we are open we can all assist and learn from one another. Everything and everyone is a teacher. Growth is not always easy or pleasant but it is enlightening and freeing. The more self-responsibility we take, the freer we become. Transformation is not for the weak of heart. We are all here on a beautiful and magical journey together.”

Medizate’s goal is to empower individuals but also to reach into corporations and offer these tools to management so that their employees will be happier, healthier, more productive – for the benefit of the employee as well as for the company’s own bottom line.

Yvonne Pratt and Sheila Santi are co-founders of the Pratt-Santi Institute LLC and developers of Medizate Empowerment Tools. Yvonne is a LCSW-R, Certified Hypnotherapist, Master Hypnotherapist Trainer and Reikki practitioner. She is a member of National Association of Social Workers, International Association of Counselors & Therapists.

Sheila Santi is an Addictions Counselor, Certified Hypnotherapist, Master Hypnotherapist Trainer and Reikki therapist. She is also a member of International Association of Counselors & Therapists.

The World’s Greatest Transfer of Wealth has Begun, Says Larry Derossett, Independent Consultant for Ambit Energy

Larry Derossett, IndependentConsultant for Ambit Energy, agrees this will be the largest transfer of wealth the world has ever seen.

Chicago, IL, February 01, 2012 – Larry Derossett, IndependentConsultant for Ambit Energy, agrees this will be the largest transfer of wealth the world has ever seen. This windfall opportunity is a direct result of recent energy deregulation, which opens limitless possibilities for growth, wealth and career potential.

In 2010 Ambit Energy was named the #1 fastest-growing privately held company in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine. And with continued expansion into new markets, steady Customer growth, a patented billing system and award-winning Customer Care Team, Ambit Energy is making great strides, and is only getting started.

Derossett explains, “Chicagoland customers have the right to choose their utility provider.

Ambit Independent Consultants have the great opportunity to earn an extraordinary living helping others save money on electricity and natural gas – the most habitually used and unconsciously purchased services. Plus they can empower others do the same.”

However, the most exciting news is even with their sizable growth, Ambit Energy currently accounts for a fraction of nation’s $51.8 billion-dollar deregulated energy market. That means an Independent Ambit Consultant has near limitless growth and earnings potential. And it can all start for you, today.

If you are interested in becoming a highly motivated member of our team, or would like to know about opportunities with Ambit Energy, please contact Larry Derossett at iwantpowerforfree@gmail.com Or visit our team website – http://energygoldrush.com/powerforfree
