Van Michael Salon is proud to announce the results of their annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser and partnership with the Pink Heals Foundation. This October, more than 950 clients participated in the salon’s Blow Out To End Breast Cancer fundraiser by selecting a premium blow dry style service for a $5 donation to the cause.
The efforts of these clients and Van Michael employees raised $5,000, which will fund Pink Heals Foundation initiatives that aid Atlanta’s young cancer survivors in regaining their confidence after the completion of treatment.
“We are blown away by the joint effort of our employees and clients, whose participation in this year’s Blow Out To End Breast Cancer has allowed us to more than double our 2011 donation to the Pink Heals Foundation. We are honored to support the organization’s important programming for local breast cancer survivors and are proud that the community has also rallied behind us to back this cause,” said Susan Dykstra, CEO of Van Michael Salon.
Founder and executive director of Pink Heals Foundation, Lisa Vingerling stated, "We are so grateful for our partnership with the amazing team at Van Michael Salon. Their support not only raises funds that will allow for many more young survivors to reclaim their confidence and beauty after cancer, but also raises awareness about our organization. The exposure and funding that have resulted from our partnership will help us to expand in the coming year in membership and programming.”
Pink Heals Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young cancer survivors regain confidence after the completion of treatments with fun, confidence-building programming and events.
