Businesses up and down Newbury Street are joining together to support a local stylist injured by the Boston Marathon bombings.
On Monday, May 13, twenty-two Newbury Street salons and spas will join Boston Strong Celeste-A-Thon by offering haircuts, blowouts, spa services, and more at discounted prices to benefit EMERGE stylist Celeste Corcoran.
Corcoran, who has worked at Newbury Street’s EMERGE Spa & Salon for over 13 years, was near the finish line the Boston Marathon cheering on her sister when the two bombs exploded. She lost both of her legs below the knee and her 17-year-old daughter, Sydney, was severely injured.
The businesses will donate up to 100 percent of their proceeds to the Celeste and Sydney Fund.
Several nearby businesses will also be hosting Boston Strong Celeste-A-Thon raffles to benefit the fund. Customers can purchase tickets at each participating location from May 1 through May 13 to win over 50 prizes.
The shops selling raffle tickets are: Avanti Salon, Athena Aveda, Babycottons, Beaucage Salon & Spa, Brooks Brothers, Crush Boutique – Newbury St., Dani Wagener Beauty, Dependable Cleaners – Newbury St., EMERGE Spa & Salon, FIras Yousif Originals, G2O Spa + Salon, Get In Shape for Women – Back Bay, GLOW Tanning Center, Ibex Indoor Clothing, Lash L’amour, L’elite, North South Physical Therapy, Persona Salon, Pinkberry – Newbury St., Pompanoosuc Mills, Ruth Tedaldi / Dermatology Partners, Inc., Salon Marc Harris, Smoothie King, The Frye Company, The Salon at 10 Newbury, and WICHIT.
Dependable Cleaners and L’elite will also donate a percentage of their sales on May 13 to the fund.
