Haiti Fundraiser Seeks Support

article-1242929-07d9251d000005dc-556_964x640Calling all New York spas! Oasis Day Spa’s Bruce Schoenberg is in the process of organizing a fundraiser to help the victims of Haiti’s recent earthquake. He’s in need of your help and support to organize an event called “Massage for Haiti.” Along with seeking staff members at area spas who will volunteer their services, he’s also on the hunt for a large venue, where he plans to invite caring New Yorkers to receive chair or table massages, with 100 percent of the proceeds raised going to relief efforts.

“I would like to see the spa industry nationally get on board with this and hope to see others organize similar efforts in their respective cities,” he says. “I think we can get this together in short order and raise awareness for the event and do it by end of the month.”

If you would like to get involved, please email Bruce at bruce@oasisdayspanyc.com or call him at 212-254-7722 ext 238.
