Beauty for a cause at Apple Day Spa
By KIMBERLY M. WEYANDT
HONESDALE, PA - It was with tear-filled eyes and a thankful smile that Sandy Dunn accepted a check from Karen Houshultz, owner of Apple Day Spa and Salon, on Tuesday, November 30.
The check was one-third of the proceeds raised at the Apple Day Spa and Salons benefit on November 14.
The November benefit is an annual event held by the Apple Day Spa as a way to give back to the community. The spa staff donated their time and services. The benefit raised over $2,000, and the proceeds were split equally between Honesdale Communities that Care, The Sandy Dunn Fund (Dunn is in need of a kidney transplant) and the late Brad Smith family.
Honesdale Communities that Care is a program that focuses on providing a safe, social and studious environment for children from the time they are dismissed from school to when their parents get home from work.
The clients, who helped support this event, received services from Apple Day Spa and Salon at 25 percent off. The clients had the satisfaction of receiving services while knowing that their money was going back into the community in the form of donations for people in need.
Its so nice to see how a small community supports each other through this benefit, said Houshultz, who also commended her staff members, who she said give year round without hesitation to help others.
