The Beauty of Giving Back: MY SALON Suite Raises More than $120,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in Just One Month
(CARROLLTON, TX) Oct. 31, 2023 — MY SALON Suite, a salon suite franchise that focuses on providing stylists and beauticians a personal space to build their business and the beauty industry’s future, announced it has raised more than $120,000 this year for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through the brand’s Suite Relief Fund™, an annual fundraiser held in September in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This marks the fifth year of the fundraiser, and the third consecutive year the brand has surpassed its goal to raise more than $120,000.
The long-standing partnership between St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and MY SALON Suite began with the launch of the Suite Relief Fund™ in 2018. Now, the Suite Relief Fund has raised over $600,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since the partnership’s inception. Continued support through financial 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.
“For the third consecutive year, the MY SALON Suite community rallied together to surpass our goal and raise over $120,000 for St. Jude,” said Stacy Eley, president of Suite Management Franchising. “The majority of donations this year were less than $50, the collective effort and generosity of so many of our Members and their clients adding up to a huge number. With MY SALON Suite's ongoing growth and expanded efforts, we look forward to continuing our support of St. Jude’s life-saving mission and achieving an even greater impact in the years to come.”
MY SALON Suite surpassed its fundraising goal through generous donations from clients, members, franchise partners, vendors and the Suite Management Franchising team. Scott Neglia, owner of MY SALON Suite Port Jefferson, and Mike and Tonya Hilliard, owners of MY SALON Suite West Melbourne, were this year’s top fundraising locations. As part of the brand’s commitment to giving back, MY SALON Suite also recently honored multi-unit franchisee Randy Gunst with the B.I.G. ("Beauty in Giving") Award during the brand’s annual convention, in recognition of his contributions to his community.
