Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, Ocean City had planned to hold its annual Ocean City Girls Weekend April 3-5. Now, with all events removed from the calendar for the entire month of April, that in-person shopping, dining, and entertainment event is a no-go. Fortunately, new local business DriftSpaces, a collaborative work venue, has come up with the idea to hold a virtual Girls Weekend event.
Here’s what’s happening during Virtual Girls Weekend:
Friday, April 3
4:30 p.m.: Diamond Barre Fitness: $5 Express barre class
7:30 p.m.: Hand Sani & Sips with Jordan Simone Wellness
Saturday, April 4
8:30 a.m.: Downtown Pilates: Free mat Pilates class
9:30 a.m.: Diamond Barre Fitness: $5 barre class
10 a.m.: Yoga Ginger: Free 30-minute yoga class
Sunday, April 5

In addition to being a great way to connect with others and learn new things, this virtual Girls Weekend event is also a fundraiser for OCNJ CARE, a local nonprofit organization originally formed back in 2012 in response to Superstorm Sandy and the need to help out the local community. OCNJ CARE was put back into action to respond to this current crisis and raise funds to help local individuals in need. Find out more by visiting the OCNJ CARE site.
