SPADA-thon drives community giving by offering deep-discounted salon and spa services.


In it's eighth year, SPADA Salon & Day Spa will host its annual event, SPADA-thon on Tuesday, May 23 from 4 to 8 p.m. to provide deep-discounted services in order to benefit local charities. Specially priced services include $20 wet haircuts, $10 kids cut, $15 mini-manicures, $10 brow or lip waxing, $15 chair massages and reflexology, and $160 Botox. The fundraiser is expected to exceed last year's $33,000 campaign goal to benefit PACE Center for Girls, Lee; Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida; and Valerie's House.

In 2016 this fabulous event raised a record-breaking $33,000 to split between the three amazing charities. SPADA owner Judy Williams said, "In just one afternoon alone, we raised a significant amount for these three great organizations. We look forward to setting new records this year as we grow this event in order to support their missions."

In addition to the specially priced salon services, the evening will offer fashion boutique vendors, tarot card reading, crystal healers, food, wine, music, and even some exciting surprises. 

Admission to SPADA-thon is $10 and one or more new or gently used dresses, handbags, accessories or shoes to be sold at Love That Dress!, an annual shopping extravaganza hosted by PACE Center for Girls, Lee being held later this year.
