This project seeks to raise funds to hire and pay stylists and a make-up artist from one of Fairbanks' most amazing salons, S Salon & Studio, to help seniors at The Denali Center get ready for their annual Senior Prom! Senior Prom is on April 8th, 2020 and we are so excited to be able to help The Denali Center's residents feel extra gorgeous and handsome for this special event. The Denali Center Prom is an annual event where residents not only attend a formal ball but also help to plan and design each year’s theme. Events like these are incredibly important and enriching in the lives of our seniors.
S Salon & Studio employees will work from noon - 6pm providing shampoos, hair styles and updos, hair cuts as needed and make-up for residents.
"Opened in 1994, Denali Center is a 90-bed comprehensive short- and long-term care facility located next to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, and accessed through a corridor connecting the two.
Following the Eden Alternative, Denali Center has a neighborhood-like architectural style and layout. We have beautiful plants, visiting pets and laughter. We encourage generations to talk and get to know one another in our comfortable, homelike atmosphere.
Our highly skilled and compassionate staff strive to meet residents’ needs while respecting their privacy and individualism. Denali Center also gives residents access to daily activities, visits from friends and family, a place to worship and on-site shopping options. "
