Newport Beach, Nov. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Images Luxury Nail Lounge, home to some of the world's most luxurious mani-pedi services, is donating $10,000 to Irvine, California's Plaza Vista School PTA to help fund a protective shade structure over the students' playground. As part of its mission to give back to its community, Images has taken a role as a Platinum Sponsor to help reduce risks of skin cancer in children.
"Though we are most widely known for our glamorous nail treatments, Images Luxury Nail Lounge also offers an extensive menu of skincare services," said Tony Nguyen, general manager of Images. "Pooling our passion for healthy skin and our desire to give back to our community, sponsoring the Plaza Vista School PTA in developing a shade structure seemed like the right thing to do."
Currently, one out of five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetimes, according the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). For children in particular, who are more likely to spend significant time outdoors, prevention will play an essential role in reducing cancer risk.
As a year-round school in the notoriously sunny Southern California area, Plaza Vista began its own fundraising program. With help from sponsors like Images, Plaza Vista plans to have its protective shade structure completed by March 2016...just in time for the summer.
"While diamond-studded manicures are wonderful, having healthy skin is essential," said Nguyen. "Whether pampering seniors with free luxury pedicures or helping students maintain healthy skin, we feel it is important to serve our community in as many ways as possible."
Images will be a Guest of Honor at the Shade Structure Dedication Ceremony this spring, when the school will also unveil an acknowledgement plaque for the salon's generous donation.
