Sponsoring Looks for Life

This year we are official sponsors of LOOKS Salon and Spa's annual Looks for Life fundraiser for the local non-profit Grassroots for Suicide Prevention.  The fundraiser was started by the salon's owner, Marilyn Petersen, after her son Patrick committed suicide in 2002, and has raised over $100,000 for Grassroots over ten years.  Grassroots provides an emergency and transitional shelter, a 24-hour phone and walk-in crisis center and an educational resource for all.  Suicide is a painful and personal topic for many of us, and what Marilyn Petersen has achieved in the face of such a tragedy is praiseworthy.

From Sept. 9-23rd you will be able to see materials relating to the studio set up at Looks, and on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 10am to 2pm Looks Salon will host its fundraiser.  The staff will offer traditional salon and spa services at discounted prices: $40 haircut and styles (one-price-fits-all women's, men's, and children's cuts), $25 blow-drys, $15 manicures, $12 eyebrow waxes, and $25 half-hour massages.  There will also be refreshments, a DJ, and a silent auction.  ALL proceeds from this event will be donated!!

If you can't attend on the 23rd or just want to help out even more, on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 7pm to 12am, Sonoma's Bar and Grill will host an event for this fundraiser, with a nominal cover charge donation, a DJ, bar specials, and 50/50 raffle tickets available.

We will be at both events; we hope you are able to join us in supporting this great cause!
