Seattle, WA - -- Local spas and salons have partnered with Planned Parenthood Young Professionals for Sexy Salon Days, a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest.

The Seattle area businesses have agreed to donate a portion of their profits on some retail spa services during the week of June 25-July 1, 2011 to Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest in order to aid underfunded basic health services. 

The event provides a unique opportunity for smaller businesses and Seattle area men and women to show their grass roots support for Planned Parenthood by visiting the participating salons and spas. A regularly updated list of participating spas and salons is now available at www.ppgnw.org/salondays.

Some of the participating salons include: Luscious Skin Spa, Samara Skin Care, Prajina day Spa, the Community Acupuncture Project in Columbia City and Sweet Spot in Fremont.

“As professional women in an economically unstable time, we understand the importance of providing health care to those who cannot receive care otherwise.  The Sweet Spot is proud to support Sexy Salon Days to help emphasize the importance of Planned Parenthood’s role in our community,” said Lara Olsha, owner of Sweet Spot in Fremont. 

Angie Hughes, L. Ac., from the Community Acupuncture Project in Columbia City added, “As a community clinic whose primary focus is to bring health care to all in our community, we firmly support the mission of Planned Parenthood.  We’re participating to ensure that everyone, regardless of financial status, gets to enjoy the basic right of control over their reproductive health.”

The event is being organized by the Planned Parenthood Young Professionals, a coalition of young people who are working to raise $10,000 for their local Planned Parenthood affiliate before the end of the year.  “Sexy Salon Days gives our supporters the rare opportunity to provide health care access for people who need it while feeling healthy and beautiful themselves,” said Patricia Ploesch, chair of the PP Young Professionals event.  “It’s the ultimate win, win.”
