“It was such an honor to partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the month of September. We were happy to see our franchise partners connect during the initiative and help raise awareness during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month,” said Ken McAllister, CEO of Suite Management Franchising and president of MY SALON Suite. “This was our first annual fundraising initiative with St. Jude and we are looking forward to next year, where we hope to surpass this year’s donations to further benefit St. Jude.”
Suite Management Franchising started its partnership with St. Jude in 2018, as they launched the Suite Relief Fund, to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with fundraising and to help franchise members in times of disaster. Suite Management Franchising will continue to its partnership with St. Jude and help bring awareness to childhood cancer.
