Tucson, AZ – December 3, 2021 – Tucson Medical Center (TMC), recently named the best hospital in Tucson by U.S. News and World Report, signed a one-year contractor agreement last week with Tucson start-up, Antsy Nancy LLC.
Antsy Nancy, located within a mile of TMC at 5655 E River Rd. in the prominent River Center, provides how-to skills classes for home, health, and happiness. Master skills classes are designed for beginners with new DIY projects offered every month. Categories include Arts & Crafts, Cooking & Entertaining, Gardening & Landscaping, Holiday Projects, Home Decorating, and Health, Wellness & Beauty. Expert instruction, tools and materials are all provided and each class results in a new skill learned and a successfully executed project for students to share with family and friends.
These ‘skills classes’, provided both in-person and online are exactly what appealed to TMC’s Senior Cares Team.
Heidi Yribar, Founder and CEO of Antsy Nancy said she is honored to align with TMC. “I’m extremely fortunate to have earned this opportunity to partner with such a prominent Tucson institution. To have earned this opportunity only a month after opening my doors is surreal and I am extremely grateful to Maya Luria, Director, Senior Services and her team for supporting small business in Tucson.”
Antsy Nancy will provide instruction and materials for one class each month in the 2022 calendar year. The benefit to TMC Seniors is an opportunity to take an Antsy Nancy class once a month, without the standard in-person or online class registration fee. “TMC has put together a very special package for its members so the only fee they are responsible for is the cost of materials,” said Yribar.
Initially, materials will be provided via kits that registrants will pick-up at TMC Senior Cares prior to the live online class. “We’re hopeful that in-person classes at TMC will resume in March,” said Yribar. In the meantime, regularly scheduled classes found at www.antsy-nancy.com and private events are offered in-person, online, or as a hybrid option.
Yribar and Antsy Nancy staff will be on-hand at the TMC Senior Cares Holiday Open House on December 14th, providing a mini-workshop, compliments of TMC. “We’ll be teaching how-to etch glassware and each guest can customize a candle holder or vase with their monogram, or a holiday scene,” said Yribar.
