Lighting the Way to Excellence in Cancer Care ... Close to Home

Calista Grand Salon and Day Spa initiated this annual fundraiser in 1998. Owner Maria McCool and her team of stylists saw on a daily basis how cancer affected so many people. Clients and employees would share personal battles with cancer or stories of loved ones touched by the disease. Realizing the widespread impact of cancer, Maria and her team created a fundraiser that had a dual purpose - to raise funds for cancer and to provide a day of beauty for local survivors. Over time, the event grew and the SHINE committee formed. These volunteers are deeply commitment to benefiting the patients of The Cancer Program through the planning of this fundraiser.
