Specially priced services include $20 wet haircuts, $10 kids cuts, $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, the event raised a record-breaking $33,300 to split between the three charities.

“In just one afternoon alone, we raised a significant amount for these three great organizations,” SPADA owner Judy Williams said. “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 readings, crystal healers, food, wine, music and some exciting surprises. Megan DiPiero will also be offering special $50 kids photography sessions (includes kids’ cut & style). Call 482- 1858 or visit www.SpadaSpa.com for reservations.
