Spas for a Cause: 5 Years and Going Strong
Since 2014, we’ve raised more than $60,000 for National Breast Cancer Foundation and we have you to thank for turning our mission–using the power of warm water to bring people together for comfort and support–into a movement.
Five years ago, our team came together to start Spas for a Cause™, a campaign that could have meaningful impact and supports a cause we felt could make a difference. Our designers created a breast cancer awareness pink hot tub and then we chose an organization to raise funds for. We picked National Breast Cancer Foundation because they provide early detection and breast health services to women in need.
In addition to selling bright pink hot tubs, we host our annual Pink Party at a local San Diego brewery. Everyone comes out a winner, not only for taking a stand against breast cancer, but there is a high chance to win an awesome raffle or silent auction item! The last prize of the night raffled off is a pink hot tub; it’s also the most memorable, too! Who wouldn’t want to win a free hot tub?
We don’t stop at the Pink Party! We also encourage our 650+ dealer locations to join the fight and host their own Spas for a Cause event in their local market for a charity of their choice. We’ve hosted a golf tournament to take our fundraising efforts outside. This year, Watkins Wellness hosted its first Pink Week, where employees can support breast cancer awareness in numerous ways, including writing a letter to current fighters, donating their spare changes, and wearing pink in solidarity with others fighting this disease.
You can get involved, too! Help us this year by donating to NBCF, purchasing a pink hot tub through your local dealer, or coming to our Pink Party at Helia Brewing Company on October 17, 2019 from 5-8pm!
We can imagine a world without cancer, can you?
