My Salon Suite has raised $123,744 in benefit of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital through the brand's Suite Relief Fund, an annual fundraiser held throughout September in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The salon suite franchise surpassed its initial goal of raising $120,000 through generous donations from clients, members, franchise partners, vendors and the Suite Management Franchising team. Continued support through donations helps St. Jude provide treatment, travel, housing, and food to the more than 400,000 kids with cancer around the world each year, at no charge to their families.
"At My Salon Suite, we believe in the beauty of giving back, and I am extraordinarily proud of our community for raising over $120,000 for St. Jude for the second year in a row," said Stacy Eley, president of Suite Management Franchising. "Year after year, we continue to surpass our fundraising goals to help St. Jude carry out their life-saving mission. As My Salon Suite continues to grow and expand our efforts, we look forward to continuing to make a difference."
Suite Management Franchising, the parent company of My Salon Suite and Salon Plaza, launched the Suite Relief Fund in 2017 and began its partnership with St. Jude the following year. Over the last five years, more than half a million dollars has been raised and donated for St. Jude through the Suite Relief Fund. Additionally the Suite Relief raises funds for other causes, including aiding My Salon Suite Members affected by natural disasters through the Professional Beauty Association's Disaster Relief Fund. Aid has been disbursed to My Salon Suite Members affected by Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Ida, Hurricane Ian, recent St. Louis flooding and other natural disasters.
Over $30,000 from the Suite Relief Fund has recently gone towards aiding Fort Myers, Florida Members in the wake of Hurricane Ian. During MY SALON Suite's annual convention, an additional $1,300 was raised for Suite Relief through a raffle, with roughly half of the prize money going towards providing a Fort Myers-based franchisee with gas and grocery gift cards to give to his Members who are struggling after Hurricane Ian.
