Girls Night Out for Charity at Juvenesse Spa

| May 18, 2009 | 0 Comments


Girlfriends love to spa—and when they can spa for charity, they feel even better! Chicagonista and Girlfriend Celebrations recently hosted a Girls Night Out for Charity at Juvenesse Spa . It was a fantastic evening for girlfriends to network in the tranquil environs of Juvenesse, a hidden gem in the River North neighborhood of Chicago. All proceeds from the event benefited Peace Journey, a charity started by spa owner Jeannette Kravitz. Girlfriends attending the event enjoyed complimentary champagne, a fabulous spread of hors d’oeuvres, and two mini spa services, ranging among chair massage, eye zone therapy, and makeup application.

In addition to receiving a $25 gift card for a future visit to Juvenesse, spa samples, and discounts from Juvenesse, girlfriends also received a bag full of swagthanks to our fabulous sponsors! In the bag:

The Wildwater Walking Club, a new novel by Claire Cook from Hyperion Books and Voice. This novel, about a woman who has to figure out what she wants out of her life after some bumps in the road, follows three women as they begin to find a new path. Great summer reading! Our guests each received a hardcover edition. For more about the book, clickhere.

The Art of the Apology by Lauren Bloom. This book by a business ethics expert teaches how to apologize effectively to practically anyone. Since a sincere apology is an essential friendship skill, we were happy to have this book in our swag bag!

Conversation Confetti from Chicago-based always a girls girl. This package of 20+ cards with talk-about-it questions and scenarios to gets your guests mingling!

PakNaks These decorative accessories transform plain backpacks, bags and other stuff into personalized, ever-changing, colorful works of art. Over 40 adorable peel-and-stick designs are available. We can totally see using these to brighten up a summer tote bag. And there’s no ironing, sewing or pinning!

M&Ms also supported this great event. Have you tried M&Ms Premiums? We tried the Raspberry Almond flavor and they are quite the delicious little splurge.

A great big thank you to all of our sponsors, to Juvenesse and MJ Tam of Chicagonista for organizing this event. Girlfriend Celebration is proud to be part of it. Special thanks to all the women who came out (braving the weather —a major storm came up just as the event was ending) and filled the spa with their enthusiasm. We truly enjoyed meeting you!  For more pictures of the beautiful girlfriends who attended, see theJuvenesse Spa blog.
