National Salon Suite Parent Company Announces Nationwide Fundraising Effort for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
This September, Suite Management Franchising is finding the beauty in giving.
The nation’s premier salon suite franchise, housing both MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza, has announced its systemwide fundraising effort to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the brands have collectively pledged to raise $40,000 for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®
More than 130 MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza locations will take part in this initiative by hosting a variety of fundraising events throughout the month of September. Independent beauty, barber and wellness professionals are inviting community members to mock-tail nights and bake sales, as well as encouraging their clients to contribute to donation jars. Through these events, each location is setting to reach an individual goal of $325, making it easy for Suite Management Franchising to surpass its goal of $40,000.
“We’re excited to partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to ignite the first annual, nationwide effort for Suite Management Franchising during the month of September,” said Ken McAllister, CEO of Suite Management Franchising and president of MY SALON Suite. “This is a great way for our locations across the country to connect with a common goal of raising money and bringing awareness to childhood cancer.”
Suite Management Franchising launched its partnership with St. Jude in 2018, after starting The Suite Relief Fund. The Suite Relief Fund supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by fundraising, along with MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza members in times of disaster. Suite Management Franchising will continue to makes strides with fundraising for St. Jude, through the first annual fundraising effort during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Raising the bar in luxury for salon entrepreneurs and consumers across North America, MY SALON Suite offers a fully equipped styling center and other eco-salon suite amenities to attract and inspire experienced beauty, barber and wellness experts. Dedicated to empowering their members with the desire for growth, freedom and ownership, Salon Plaza provides a unique community for salon professionals to embrace the opportunity and operate their own private studio located within an upscale and vibrant plaza. Both concepts are customizable, secure and committed to investing in the modern-day health and beauty professional.
