Helping Kids is Always in Style for Puffer’s Salon & Day Spa

Puffer’s Salon & Day Spa Participates in Nationwide HAIRraising for Boston Children’s Hospital

Top salons throughout the United States will be participating in HAIRraising, a fundraising event benefitting Boston Children’s Hospital’s Heart Center.  Puffer’s Salon and Day Spa is proud to be a part of this initiative and will be hosting a month-long celebration including raffles, featured items and promotions in support of Boston Children’s Hospital.  Throughout the month of May, 100% of the proceeds from all children’s haircuts with go to Boston Children’s Hospital. 

Founded in 2010 by longtime business partners John Frieda and Gail Federici, HAIRraising brings together the salon and hair communities to help support the life-saving care and breakthrough cures, treatments and innovations at Boston Children’s Hospital.  Frieda and Federici targeted the salon industry because of the giving, generous nature of this community.

“We’re so grateful to the salon community for their ongoing support of Boston Children’s Hospital,” said Frieda.  “We’re consistently overwhelmed and amazed by the level of commitment this effort receives from salon owners and stylists.”

“Support for Boston Children’s Hospital is critical,” said Federici.  “We need everyone to understand the huge global impact that this hospital has, not only for children, but for adults as well.  Together with this event, we can help save countless lives.”

“Puffer’s Salon & Day Spa is thrilled to participate in HAIRraising this year to support Boston Children’s Hospital,” said owner Judy Puffer.  “It’s exciting to be a part of something that unifies our community and can make such a huge difference in the lives of sick children.”

In the past seven years, salons have raised more than $1,000,000 for Boston Children’s Hospital through HAIRraising and the generosity of the salon community.  This year’s event is expected to raise over $300,000 for the hospital.
