Breast Cancer Awareness month hits close to home for Salon Services.
Our Owner & President, Sydney Berry was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1990- and now, almost 30 years later, she is still fighting. As she continues to undergo treatment, she finds strength and hope in her journey, both past and future. She is driven by her “WHY” and strives to live each day with purposeful intention.
Sydney’s “WHY” has helped to guide Salon Services in partnering with brands, businesses, and foundations that share her vision and mission for change- in business and in life. We are proud to support Wings of Karen, a local non-profit breast cancer foundation supporting research with a sense of urgency. For many years, both Sydney and Salon Services have participated in various events to raise awareness and money for the foundation, bringing international recognition to this local, grassroots organization.
Many of our vendor partners and distributor friends have also joined in raising awareness through their support for Wings of Karen
. For the past several years, KEVIN.MURPHY
, an Australian based hair care brand, has donated a percentage of their sales during the month of October in honor of Sydney, to Wings of Karen. Last year, Kevin Murphy donated $4 per case sold of their limited edition SESSION.SPRAY
, while Salon Services matched every donation with an additional $4 per case sold, raising over $10,000 for breast cancer research.
This year, Kevin Murphy has created a special KEVIN.MURPHY LOVES PINK promotion
and is donating $1 for every box sold. Our distributor friends across the United States are also joining the fight, and we invite you to join us with your purchase of the KEVIN.MURPHY LOVES PINK promo.
