Blo Blow Dry Bar, the original blow dry bar and world’s largest blow dry bar franchise, kicked off its Blo for a Cause initiative to in efforts to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) and raise money for pediatric cancer treatment and research.

Each September, Blo locations across Canada and the United States fundraise in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) by accepting donations from guests in-bar to benefit Blo’s three main charitable partners: Sick Kids Foundation and BC Children’s Hospital in Canada, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the United States. This year, Blo locations across the U.S. have been accepting donations for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Saturday, September 28, Blo Blow Dry will be donating $2 from each and every blow out to the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. In addition to its fundraising efforts for St. Jude, Blo locations in Canada have also been accepting donations throughout September for its Canadian charity partners, Sick Kids Foundation and BC Children’s Hospital.

Blo Blow Dry Bar first launched Blo for a Cause in 2016 and over the past three years, the company has raised more than $39,000 for pediatric cancer treatment and research. The cause is very near and dear to the company’s heart – Vanessa Yakobson, CEO and partner of Blo Blow Dry Bar, is a survivor of childhood Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and an advocate for pediatric cancer treatment and research.

“As a survivor of childhood Hodgkin’s lymphoma, this cause is very near and dear to my heart and as a company, we’re proud to advocate for pediatric cancer treatment and research,” said Vanessa Yakobson, CEO and partner of Blo Blow Dry Bar. “St. Jude has made significant strides in increasing the childhood cancer survival rate and we hope that our contributions will help support their continued efforts to end childhood cancer.”
