In 2016, Ronald McDonald Houses across the country entered a beautiful partnership with Chatters Salons.
Chatters chose Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Canada as their charity partner for their “Beautiful Cause” event in May of last year. The event raised $56,000 with proceeds split evenly across all 15 Houses in Canada.
In addition to last year’s successful fundraiser, Chatters also donated a variety of professional hair care products to Ronald McDonald Houses for families to enjoy. The donation included shampoos, conditioners, and various styling aids.
Bonnie & Brian Grover, Owners of three Chatters locations, Mic Mac Mall, Bayers Lake and Dartmouth Crossing, say that the partnership is a natural fit.
“The compassion that Ronald McDonald House Charities Atlantic stands for gives both my staff and I that feeling of love and pride,” shares Bonnie, who has been with Chatters for 20 years. “We are a company where a lot of our customers and employees have young families. You never know when a child’s illness may hit close to home.”
Chatters has continued to expand on their partnership, and their support for families, by donating gift bags for parents at Christmas and already have plans in the works for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year.
2017 marks the second year of the partnership with Chatters. This year’s “A Beautiful Cause” event is set to take place on Saturday, May 27th with $10 from each service donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities Atlantic. Any guest that stops into a Chatters location in Nova Scotia in May and makes a donation will be entered in a draw to win a prize bag valued at more than $600.
