WOMEN AT THE CHEZ DORIS DAY SHELTER WILL NOT BE BROKEN-HEARTED ON VALENTINE’S DAY

Montreal – Wednesday, February 14, 2018, West Island residents Sarah Sabloff and Cynthia Kerr will be back for a 2nd year in a row to provide a ‘’Spa Day’’ to 40 women at Chez Doris, a day shelter for women in difficulty.  Sabloff and Kerr are pleased to be involved once more to “show the love” to women who could use some tender care on Valentine’s Day. They will provide soothing Arbonne anti-aging facials and once the treatments are completed, each woman will also enjoy a makeover by well-known make-up artist Mindy Shear along with her three to four assistants.
