At AestheticA Skin Health Center and Parfitt Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center, we place an importance on giving back by participating in a variety of philanthropic events throughout the Madison and Appleton communities.
A FUND FOR WOMEN
A Fund For Women (AFFW), a component fund of The Madison Community Foundation, was established in 1993 to improve the lives of girls and women in our community. Once learning of AFFW in late 2004, Parfitt Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center (PFCSC) immediately felt compelled to sponsor AFFW’s annual event fundraiser in some capacity. In 2005, PFCSC contributed $4,000 to sponsor a portion of the media coverage for AFFW’s 2005 Annual Event Fundraiser held at The Monona Terrace in Madison, WI.
Continuing to learn more about AFFW’s focus on helping women succeed by encouraging fresh opportunities and eliminating barriers to self-sufficiency, led us to recognize similarities in the mission of PFCSC and that of AFFW. Since 2006, PFCSC chose to further support AFFW with a gift of $60,000 in donations. PFCSC continued to support AFFW with their Sustaining Stars Program. As of 2015, the Parfitt’s have started their own Acorn Fund, which will mature to $15,000 as a permanent endowment.
ANNUAL MOTHER’S DAY POTTED FLOWER EXCHANGE
We hosted our Annual Mother’s Day Potted Flower Exchange at the beginning of May in exchange for a coupon at AestheticA. All flowers were donated to senior assisted living areas throughout the Madison and Appleton areas for Mother’s Day.
OUTSTANDING SUPPORT AWARD
AestheticA Skin Health Center was invited to receive the Outstanding Support Award from the Madison Police Department, honoring the gang tattoo removal program offered through AestheticA from 2005 – 2012. The Outstanding Support Award was presented at an awards ceremony on May 19, 2011, during which the Madison Police Department honored those who performed well under stress, went the extra mile or served our community with price.
The first annual Parfitt Poinsettia’s, a holiday poinsettia drive for domestic abuse took place during the 2014 holiday season. Each year, we decorate our offices with red poinsettias during the month of December and offer the poinsettia for a $5 donation. Dr. Parfitt matched all proceeds and donations were made to Domestic Abuse Intervention Services in Madison and Harbor House in Appleton.
