According to Potomac Local, Historic Manassas, Inc. will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome Shining Sol Candle Company to Historic Downtown Manassas on Friday, September 30th, at 5 PM.
Shining Sol Candle Company was founded in 2012 by Manassas native and resident, Pete Evick (Bret Michaels Band), an award winning musician, producer and author. The company formation came while Pete was on break from a nine month tour of the United States as the guitar player and music director for rock icon Bret Michaels, with whom he’s performed with for the last 12 years.
As an advocate of ‘going green’, Evick decided to use soy wax and wooden wicks allowing them to source all of their ingredients from farms across America. As the company grew, Evick enlisted the expertise of Sara Rodriguiz to continue moving the company forward with new candle scents as Evick returned to tour. Shining Sol’s newest partner is Deron Blevins, a local Manassas native and childhood friend of Evick. Blevins has since strengthened Shining Sol’s web development, graphic design and marketing.
Check out the Shining Sol Candle Company at this location, where you’ll find official licensed KISS and Def Leppard candles, and much more.
