Delaware Water Gap, PA – Joanna Sukiennik, owner of JS Advanced Skincare and Spa, presented Women’s Resources with the December to Remember Spa Day Event proceeds. The event, A December to Remember Spa Day offered discounted luxury services of massages, facials, and mini makeovers. The Spa Day Event raised $580 for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Monroe County.
Owner Joanna Sukiennik began volunteering with Women’s Resources of Monroe County at their thrift boutique ECHO. Ms. Sukiennik’s enjoyment of volunteering at ECHO and understanding of the mission led her to host an event benefiting Monroe County’s victims of domestic and sexual violence. JS Advanced Skincare will host an another Spa Day event in the late spring or summer of 2011.
Sukiennik explained, “I volunteered at ECHO and that is where I learned about Women’s Resources. I realized the importance of the work while volunteering there. I was glad to be involved with Women’s Resources again and know that all the money raised during our event goes to the people in need.”
Jennifer Grube, Executive Director of Women’s Resources of Monroe County said, “It is important for us to support the healing and relaxation process for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We are so fortunate to be involved with the total healing process and to have local business like JS Advanced Skincare to assist with promoting our mission.”
