Pajama Walk

November 10, 2019

Why Pajamas?

What's more relaxing than lounging around in Pajamas? No worries of being judged? No need to fit-in and conform. Pajamas come in all shapes and sizes and the more unique the better!! That's just how we feel about our incredible Friendship Circle & ZABS Place family.

Of course, we also DREAM in pajamas! That's why we're excited for you to join the 3rd
Annual Pajama Walk so we can celebrate dreams and continue to #MakeDreamsComeTrue!
