Families are invited to the event and participate in a kid-friendly crafts project. There will also be a bake sale and raffle tickets to win Panache gift cards and Aveda Light the Way Earth Month Candles.

For more than 25 years, Weeks and her team of award winning salon and spa staff members have participated in a wide variety of community service activities to give back to the community and worldwide environmental initiatives. "We continue to be fortunate in our lives and give back to those in need and to our planet with a dedicated team of professionals and supportive customers," Weeks said.
Weeks attributes the company's success to salon and spa experts who regularly participate in company and industry events and business courses including specialized training at Aveda's salon operations facilities in Orlando, St. Petersburg, Ft. Lauderdale and Tallahassee, Fla. Panache staff members study topics ranging from the top industry benchmarks to working with different generations in the workplace to client retention to network promoters, the importance of community service along with current trends and inspirations in salon and spa services.
For example, the Julington Creek Panache store which opened 20 months ago builds on its success as an Aveda salon with a commitment to training and education. Weeks and salon coach Char Trimble have implemented a program for new talent where stylists have extensive training one day a week while gaining hands on experience in the latest techniques in the salon profession.
Weeks continues to receive annual recognition from Panache customers as Best Full-Service Salon, Best Day Spa, Best Nail Salon, Massage Therapist and Best Stylist, plus several industry awards which uniquely positions the company as a leading salon and spa business.
