From Friday, April 8 through Friday, April 22, Neroli Salon & Spa is holding a virtual auction to benefit the Urban Ecology Center, a Milwaukee nonprofit dedicated to environmental education, sustainability and conservation. The auction, sponsored by Milwaukee Magazine, will be offering salon and spa services, artwork, home goods, jewelry, AirPods and other items.
UEC is perhaps best known for its locations in Riverside and Washington parks, as well as the Menomonee Valley, which provide educational programs for area students, as well as kayak rentals and other services to encourage park patronage. The fundraising from the auction will go to one of the many Milwaukee Public Schools which rely on outside funding to participate in the UEC’s Neighborhood Environmental Education Program. The program gives students the chance to visit a UEC location for 24 field trips over a school year, and also includes in-class environmental curriculum with UEC educators.
Neroli’s goal is to raise $15,000 from the auction and in-store incentives, which will bring the company’s total donation to $30,000 with help from two matching donors.
“There is truly something for everyone within this auction,” says Gabrielle Barriere, Neroli’s brand manager. “It’s the perfect opportunity for current and new guests to bid on their favorite services and products, and feel good about making a difference at the same time.”
