More than 75 attended the recent “Sunbeams and Snowflakes” Day of Beauty and Open House fundraiser held last week at South Shore Skin Center and Spa in Plymouth to benefit the Children’s Melanoma Prevention Foundation (CMPF).
A total of $15,000 was raised for CMPF. South Shore Skin Center and Spa personnel generously donated their services for the event. Funds were raised from aesthetic treatments, product sales, a silent auction, raffles and individual donations. The funds will support CMPF’s innovative school-based program, “SunAWARE”, which is delivered free of charge to children from kindergarten through twelfth grade in Massachusetts schools.
Representatives from CMPF were on hand throughout the day to provide information about the foundation’s mission and program to protect children from skin cancer. Guests were able to shop for luxurious holiday Spa gifts and take advantage of amazing “deals” through the silent auction. Raffle prizes were also awarded.
“We had a terrific turnout. We’re so grateful for the generous support of everyone who attended and the providers at South Shore Skin Center and Spa,” noted Maryellen Maguire-Eisen, RN, MSN, Director of CMPF. “The funds raised are essential to the growth and continuity of our foundation’s SunAWARE educational program.”
