(HEATH, TX — December 1, 2017) Heath Salon & Spa presented checks of $3,000 each to Women in Need (WIN) and Patriot Paws Service Dogs from the proceeds of its Holiday Open House fundraiser on Nov. 9. The salon welcomed representatives from both organizations to receive the donations on Tuesday, Nov. 28.
The Open House event saw local merchants come together at Heath Salon to raise money for the two nonprofits with pop-up shops, popsicles from Steel City Pops, and raffle prizes. Renowned stylist Denise Roussow was on hand to demonstrate her Top Secret Haircessory and offer free consultations. Shoppers enjoyed great food all day and live music from the Rockwall-Heath High School Jazz Band.
“WIN is so very grateful to be one of the recipients of the Heath Salon & Spa Holiday Open House fundraiser,” said Cheryl Bahm, WIN community outreach coordinator. “Working alongside so many wonderful organizations in Rockwall County, it is a true blessing to be picked to receive these funds. They will go a long way in helping provide refuge, empowerment and restoration to families affected by domestic violence. In fact, this donation will help 25 mothers and their children have a safe place to sleep at night.”
“Donations are essential to our mission statement and the sole way we can provide service dogs of the highest quality to veterans at no cost,” said Aaron Mixell, Patriot Paws veteran coordinator. “We’re so thankful to Heath Salon for putting on this event to support Patriot Paws, our veterans and their service dogs.”
Heath Salon Owner and Stylist Jauna French said she was amazed at the turnout and the passion with which the salon’s staff, clients and community members came together in support of the two local nonprofits.
“The power of people coming together to give back is always so much more than we thought it would be. It’s always amazing to see just how giving this community is,” French said.
