New York, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2009
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York is gearing up to begin its second annual "Spa for a Year" promotion supporting October Breast Cancer Awareness Month and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) founded by Evelyn Lauder. Long Life Raffle Tokens will be available for purchase beginning October 1st at the reception desk at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York and sales will continue until the end of the month when a winning token will be drawn.
The winning token holder will receive a year's worth of two-hour spa treatments* at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York - one treatment per month, for 12 consecutive months. Mandarin Oriental, New York's "Spa for a Year" prize is valued at over $6,000. Long Life Raffle Tokens are $50 each, 10 tokens are $450, and 20 tokens can be purchased for $900. All proceeds from the Long Life Raffle Token sales are donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
"We are very excited to be continuing this program in support of breast cancer research and October Breast Cancer Awareness Month," states Denise Vitiello, Spa Director at Mandarin Oriental, New York. "Our 'Spa for a Year' program is just one of the initiatives we have to promote wellness and good health to our guests and the local community. Last year, guests bought tokens in bulk to give to loved ones, friends and breast cancer survivors - a wonderfully thoughtful and meaningful gift. As a result, we donated $3,500 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and our goal is to increase our donation year after year."
Last year's winner was inspired to purchase tokens to support such an important cause and was delighted when she learned that she was the lucky winner. "It's the best thing I have ever won in my life. It was a shock to win and I have had such an amazing experience this year."
*A two-hour treatment is one hour and 50 minutes of active treatment time. Ten extra minutes are factored in for guest arrival and preparation.
