Latest Status Update

  • When we think about our community of Make-A-Wish supporters, a few words come to mind: passionate, caring, resilient, inspirational, dedicated... to name just a few. Our dear friend Eva Kerschbaumer, owner of ESSpa Kozmetika, exemplifies all of these characteristics -- and more. She has been graciously supporting the Make-A-Wish mission for more than 10 years and has raised nearly $10,000 to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. It's an understatement to say we are incredibly grateful for her commitment to our cause. ESSpa, located in Aspinwall, PA, is an organic Hungarian skin and hair salon, that offers an array of services including massages and facials as well as an eDry Brow and blow dry bar. Through all of these services, Eva has continually led her clients to join her in giving back to wish kids throughout the region. Next time you're in need of a salon visit, consider going to ESSpa. Not only will you have a fabulously relaxing experience, but you'll also transform the lives of local kids -- kids just like Phoebe. Can you think of a better reason to pamper yourself?
