Root 39 Salon & Spa Giving Back...
Ray and Julie Wolniewicz are the proud parents of Natalie and Lauren. The girls were born four months premature. Thank you to the community for donating $1750 to our annual Giving Tree for Natalie & Lauren, our preemie angels and recipients of our 2017 Giving Tree.
Every dollar collected goes directly to our recipients. Update on the twins: both girls are gaining, as of today Natalie is 18 pounds and Lauren is 15 pounds.
Also, Thank you to all who continue to give to our Annual Giving Tree.
We believe in giving back to the community. We have raised and donated close to $100,000 for several benefits. The Call of the Wild Salon and Cocktail Competition and Bachelor auction was successful, raising over $5500 for Make-A-Wish, Trading Post and Women and Childrens Hospital.
Last year, in 2017, Root 39 Salon hosted it’s first annual COLOR CHALLENGE for all the WNY Boces Cosmetology students. We donated $1000 in color to area classes. Ashley Chase of Tracy Guntrum’s Ellicottville cosmetology class won a paid internship at Root 39 Salon. We will also be volunteering this year to proxy in the classroom, and helping with career day.
For information on interning or completing our Academy at Root 39, please contact Rita or Danielle.
Stylists have donated their time for Relay for Life and The Trading Post. Our biannual Halloween Party was attended by more than 100 kids. Local salons pulled together to help one of our own in the "Joe The Barber" benefit, we were able to help Joe with $3,000 for wheelchair van access.
Our biggest accomplishment was a $60,000 spaghetti dinner fund raiser for the Bertrand Chaffee Hospital. The support for our local hospital was overwhelming. Other charities and events we have been involved in are Warm the Children, Queen for a Day, The Dairy Princess contest, and the BCH Fashion Show. Annually our clients have helped us help local families at Christmas time with our Giving Tree.
We are so grateful for all of those who donate so generously!
