SPADA Salon & Day Spa achieved record-breaking results at its fifth annual SPADA-thon raising $22,700 to split between two local charities, PACE Center for Girls of Lee County and the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. More than 350 attendees enjoyed discounted haircuts and spa services, bid in the silent auction and shopped merchandise offered by fashion vendors.
The event also served as the kick-off to PACE’s summer LOVE THAT DRESS! collection campaign, collecting nearly 400 dresses, handbags and accessories donated by SPADA-thon guests. The new and gently worn items will be offered for nominal prices at Love That Dress!, the ultimate shopping spree fundraiser for PACE Lee scheduled for August 27, 2014 in Estero.
“I am so proud of my team for their ongoing commitment to our community through SPADA-thon. Their generosity combined with the support of so many sponsors and donors allowed us to double our impact from last year,” said owner, Judy Williams, “The energy was fantastic, and I loved watching everyone primp, shop, dance and laugh while raising funds for two deserving charities.”
