April 28 and 29
The Oasis Spa in Brentwood is holding a breast cancer fundraising event on Tuesday, April 28 and Wednesday, April 29. On those two days, you can receive spa services including massages, facials and hair services. Proceeds will benefit breast cancer.
The event is coordinated by Allison Boen, one of the estheticians at The Oasis. Allison will walk 39 miles in The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer on July 11 and 12 in San Francisco. The April event will help Boen raise money for her walk.
Allison was personally effected by breast cancer when her mother, Barbara, died of the disease in 2000. Many employees of the Oasis have friends or clients who are also affected by breast cancer (the mother of Oasis owner Tony Klotovich is a two-time breast cancer survivor), and the Oasis event is also held in honor of them.
The Oasis is located at 640 Harvest Park Drive. To book an appointment for the fundraising event, call 925-240-6274. Mention that you’re requesting an appointment for the breast cancer event. And visit www.avonwalk.org/goto/allison to learn more about the walk or make a direct donation. Allison is leading a team of walkers called Thanks for the Mammaries, and you’re welcome to register for the Avon Walk and walk with her team.
May 1 through Aug. 31
The dressbarn store in Antioch will be raising funds for the American Cancer Society through the company’s nationwide Heart Bracelet campaign. The bracelets will be sold for $5 at the dressbarn store on 5749 Lone Tree Way in Antioch (925-754-7217) from May 1 through Aug. 31, or while supplies last. Dressbarn will contribute the entire net profit of $2.50 per bracelet to the American Cancer Society.
This year, more than 5,500 Relay for Life events will be held across the country. In 2008, more than 250 dressbarn teams, comprised of customers, executives and store associates, participated in Relay For Life events and raised nearly $700,000 through team fundraising, in-store promotions and the dressbarn inc. Foundation donation. To date, dressbarn, inc. has given $5 million to the American Cancer Society to support local and national cancer initiatives.
“We are proud to say that we’ve worked closely with the American Cancer Society since 2002, and we are determined to continue to raise the bar for participation and contributions moving forward,” said dressbarn President and CEO David R. Jaffe. “We expect to exceed last year’s turnout in community member support and dollars donated to the society through the sales of our Heart Bracelet and the dressbarn locations participating in this year’s events.”
