The summer heat might have us running for cover, but that doesn’t mean we can’t spoil ourselves. What better way to stay cool than by indulging in some of Scottsdale’s hottest spa events and spa specials?
Luxurious spas in and around the greater Phoenix area are coming together to celebrate this blazing season (in the air-conditioned shade, of course) and, in the process, will raise money for a wonderful cause.
Noteworthy spa events and specials in Scottsdale this summer include:
7th Annual Summer Spaaah Series
Arizona Spa Girls will host its seventh annual Summer Spaaah Series, a line-up of seven resort spa events, with a percentage of ticket sales targeted towards Fresh Start Women’s Foundation.
Fresh Start is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women through the services of the Jewell McFarland Lewis-Fresh Start Women’s Resource Center in Phoenix.
Tickets for the Summer Spaaah Series start at $110 and include an evening reception, featuring an excellent wine selection and scrumptious samplings of the chef’s picks. Guests receive a beach bag stuffed with luxury spa and beauty products, a charity raffle ticket and, of course, mini spa services.
Each attendee will receive a “Spaaah” certificate valid toward one full spa treatment, along with use of the spa amenities on a day of their choosing, within 30 days of the event.
