Summer Spaaah Series

Born in 2006 as a way to inject our sweltering Arizona summers with a dose of fun and relaxation, the Summer Spaaah Series is an state-wide phenomenon that unites top spa destinations with health and beauty enthusiasts through engaging summertime events. Now in its eighth consecutive year, the Summer Spaaah Series celebrates the heart of Arizona’s rich spa landscape with luxury events packed with value for both consumers and local businesses. And what’s more, a portion of the proceeds of the events goes to Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, an empowering Valley-based charity that assists women in transition.

Benefiting Charity

Fresh Start Women’s Foundation is dedicated to helping empower women through the services of the Jewell McFarland Lewis-Fresh Start Women’s Resource Center, the first comprehensive self-help center for women in the country.
