SPADA Salon & Day Spa is pleased to announce SPADA-thon, an annual event to support PACE Center for Girls, Lee and the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 19.

Volunteers, sponsors and donations are currently being accepted. Call (239) 482-1858for information.
Attendees at this year’s event can look forward to $20 wet haircuts, $10 kids cuts, $15 mini-manicures, $10 brow or lip waxing, $15 chair massages and reflexology, botox and fillers, and plenty of fun and surprises, including clairvoyant/tarot card readings, Pranic (energetic) healers and balloon pop prizes. Admission is one or more new or gently used dresses, handbags, accessories or shoes to be sold at Love That Dress! This annual shopping extravaganza features fashions from beach to bridal and GAP to Gucci, and last year raised more than $125,000 for PACE Center for Girls, Lee. In lieu of a donated item, a $5 donation will serve as admission.
