TORONTO — Blo Blow Dry Bar, the original blow dry bar and the world’s largest blow dry bar franchise, is running its Blo for a Cause initiative to raise money for pediatric cancer treatment and research. Throughout the month of September, Blo locations across the U.S. will be accepting donations for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. On Saturday, September 28, Blo Blow Dry Bar will also donate $2 from each blow out to the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.
“As a survivor of childhood Hodgkin’s lymphoma, this cause is very near and dear to my heart and as a company, we’re proud to advocate for pediatric cancer treatment and research,” said Vanessa Yakobson, CEO and partner of Blo Blow Dry Bar. “St. Jude has made significant strides in increasing the childhood cancer survival rate and we hope that our contributions will help support their continued efforts to end childhood cancer.”
In addition to its fundraising efforts for St. Jude, Blo locations in Canada will also be accepting donations throughout September for its Canadian charity partners, Sick Kids Foundation and BC Children’s Hospital. Blo Blow Dry Bar first launched Blo for a Cause in 2016 and over the past three years, the company has raised more than $39,000 for pediatric cancer treatment and research.
