Community News Studio 59 holding fundraiser for Tennessee River Rescue on April 20

Studio 59 Aveda Salon and Spa are inviting area residents to come "Do Good, Feel Good" at a fundraiser to benefit Tennessee River Rescue Thursday, April 20.

The fundraiser is part of the larger Aveda Corporation's focus on clean water initiatives throughout the world, including building water wells in Madagascar and other areas where there is a lack of access to clean water, said Studio 59 General Manager Sarah Medley.

In years past, Studio 59 has used the April fundraisers to raise money for the Tennessee Clean Water Network, which protects waterways across the state. Medley said this year the salon decided to choose a nonprofit with hyper-local impact, and Tennessee River Rescue focuses on keeping Chattanooga-area rivers clean from litter and debris.

"This year we wanted to do something even closer to home," she said. "[Tennessee River Rescue] affects the cleanliness of the waters I splash around in."

From 5-7 p.m. on the day of the event, customers can come purchase $10 tickets and select from a variety of spa services, enjoy hors d'oeuvres catered from Dipped Fresh and participate in a wine tasting from Chattanooga Wine and Spirits.

Those interested in multiple services can purchase multiple tickets, ranging from a brow wax or an updo to a chair massage, moisturizing hand wrap and more.

"People will be getting these services for more than 50 percent off," Medley said of the $10 ticket price. " And we hope that when folks leave here, not only will they look beautiful and feel great, but they can feel good knowing they helped a local grassroots nonprofit organization."

The event is first come, first served and will accept both cash and credit card donations. For more information on the business, located at 2309 Hickory Valley Road, or the event's additional discounts and offers, call 894-1175.
