Our Mission: From the moment of diagnosis through end of life, Project Pink’d, Inc. provides tools, resources and a strong network to strengthen and renew the mind, body and spirit of breast cancer survivors in Nebraska and Western Iowa. Learn more and get involved.
Gloss Salon and Day Spa loves giving back to their community. On Sunday, September 24 they held their 4th annual Beauty and the Bust event in honor of local breast cancer survivors. Not typically open on Sunday, salon staff wearing pink logoed shirts volunteered their time. They offered their full range of products and services with all event proceeds going to Project Pink’d.
Their generosity and hard work paid off as they raised over $ 6,000 to benefit the local breast cancer organization whose mission is to Help Survivors Thrive. Gloss Salon owner Krisha said “Our fourth year has been the most successful to date and our goal is to increase it every year. Each year we have learned what to change to try and make the next even more successful and it helps having such a wonderful organization by our side to help any way they can."
The event services included massage therapy, facials, tanning, nail care, and hair. In addition, there were raffles and product specials. Montez from 96.1 KISS FM was on hand to broadcast on site raising more awareness and promoting the fun,
Volunteers from Project Pink’d were also present.
“Although it always feels good to give back, it creates such a different feeling when so many people from the organization show up to say thank you, educate those attending the event, give to the event, and share their stories. It makes the reason we do this every year more personal and humbling for us to be able to meet so many of the courageous women who have had cancer themselves, know someone who has or want to help those who have, " shared Krisha.
