Siskin Children’s Institute announces their community partner, Sun Tan City, and their charity event held May 19-21.

“The Sun Tan City Cares Initiative takes much pride in partnering with local charities, as it is an honor to be able to participate with organizations that are core to our beliefs and values.  It is through the continued passion and support of staff and our valued clients as well. During our Sun Tan City Cares Events, Sun Tan City hosts $5 Spray Events in which clients can donate $5 to the partnered charity and receive a free spray tan. It is a special time to see our staff, clients, and charity members come together to contribute to such important causes,” says Sun Tan City Managing Operator Garrett Bruner. 

In three days, Sun Tan City raised $6,552 to support the kids with special needs served by the Institute.
