UPDATE from Adriana, waxer and coordinator of Urban Waxx Philanthropic Task Force.
INSPIRING ALL GIRLS TO BE STRONG, SMART AND BOLD!
Please join us Saturday, July 20th, from 1-4pm at our Tanasbourne location for a mother and daughter summer Block Party! We will be serving food and drinks, there will be face painting, fingernail polish changes, gift bags, raffle giveaways and much more.
I am proud to report that over the past year our philanthropy group has planned events and fundraisers for wonderful organizations that include Friends of Trees, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and the Bradley Angle House for Women and Children.
This week many of us are pleased to have the opportunity to donate our blood to the Red Cross. I am especially proud of a certain few of us who have a fear of needles, but who are overcoming their fear in order to donate to this life saving cause!!!!
We are on a major philanthropic roll, and have decided that going forward, we will partner with one amazing non profit organization with whom we can throw our full force of energy behind, and hopefully make a real difference.
Urban Waxx is a prime example of the power of women. Every day we prove that there is nothing women can’t do, and it is important to us to associate with an organization that feels the same. For this reason, we are delighted to announce our partnership with Girls Inc.
Girls Inc. is a national organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart and bold through life-changing programs and experiences that help them to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers.
The Portland chapter of Girls Inc. currently serves over 200 girls, ages 6-18, through after school programs, mentoring, and community action projects.
We are exceedingly honored that such an organization wants to work with us, and we are excited to roll out a whole year of projects and fundraising events that will directly benefit the girls and young women in our community.
Our first project for Girls Inc. will be our Summer Block Party at Urban Waxx Tanasbourne on Saturday July 20th, from 1-4pm.
We will be selling raffle tickets for the event beginning 6 weeks prior, and all the proceeds will benefit Girls Inc. You won’t want to miss out – each hour during the Block Party we will be giving away $100 in free waxing, and the grand prize will be A YEAR OF FREE BRAZILIANS! Hope to see you there!
Thank you so much for your support. We couldn’t do anything without our amazing clients, friends, and everyone in the Urban Waxx community.
