Area girls spend a day at the spa with their "Big Sister"
FREEPORT (WREX) -
Over in Freeport, a group of girls enjoyed a special spa day thanks to one salon.
"To know that one person is taking the time out of their life to do your hair or your nails, and just talk to you and know that you're special... that makes a big difference," said Michele Iserman, a stylist at Elite Design Team Salon.
The stylists at Elite Design Team welcomed 14 young girls from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Illinois. The girls got to relax, get manicures, and have their hair styled however they wanted. The girls also got to share the day with their 'Big Sister' mentors. The salon said they could not have done it without the generous help of local sponsors and donors.
They plan to host the event every year, and hope to get boys involved, as well.
