From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

‘HAVE A HEART’ MONTH @ ILLUSIONS: Starting today, Illusions Hair Design (WSB sponsor) is launching its annual “Have a Heart” community-nonprofit fundraiser, but this year it’ll last an entire month. You’re invited to “buy” a paper heart at the salon for a $1, $5, or $20 donation that will go to Southwest Youth and Family Services – and your paper heart will help deck the walls at Illusions, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Plus, Illusions is matching donations, up to $1,000! (5619 California SW)

    @Illusions:  Love your  Have a Heart non-profit fundraiser!   I’m glad to see that Southwest Youth and Family Services is the recipient…they make a huge difference in a lot of lives.  Wondering how you chose them?

      We’ve chosen a variety of local organizations over the years as recipients for our fund raisers, and we have worked with SWYFS before, but not for a few years. They too are celebrating 40 years in 2018, (we opened June 1, 1978), so we thought they were a perfect fit for our choice this year! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
