Dominique Moceanu
at Wigs for Kids benefit at
Mona Lisa Salon Grand Opening

A very special salon and spa opened Friday, September 24 in Mayfield Heights. It is the Mona Lisa Salon and Spa owned and operated by Mona Lisa herself.

The spa opening was special for a number of reasons. First, it has long been the dream of owner, Mona, to open an establishment like this offering all natural products and services. It is also her dream to hold art shows at the spa, to draw attention to local artists. Currently most of the artwork on the walls is her own.

The second reason it was special is because Mona is Romanian and she wanted to start a business where she could celebrate her Romanian culture.

The third reason is that Dominique Moceanu, Olympic Gold Medalist (and fellow Romanian) and her husband Dr. Michael Canales were on hand for the opening to support Mona and her vision.

The fourth reason is the most special of all. The opening was also a fundraiser for Wigs for Kids a non-profit organization started right here in Northeast Ohio, whose mission it is to provide wigs for children who have lost their hair due to catastrophic disease or treatment. The organization has been working toward this goal for nearly thirty years.

Wigs for Kids is a charity Dominique Moceanu has devoted herself to, so it was a natural choice for her hair stylist friend for her opening. And it won't stop there. Mona is planning monthly events that will hopefully inspire people to not only donate their dollars to Wigs for Kids, but their hair as well.
