12 | April 12, 2018 | The winnetka Current news Feeling good and giving back Northfield’s Halo donating portion of proceeds to Northbrook YMCA Jacqueline Glosniak, Editor For the past three years, Northfield business Halo Laser & Aesthetic Medicine has helped local adults combat the aging process through their Botox services, laser skin treatments and platelet-rich plasma therapies. And, along with helping adults feel their best, Halo has also made it a priority to help combat financial strains area children and their families may have through fundraising for various programs at Northbrook-based North Suburban YMCA. After all, Halo owner Dr. Promila Banerjee — who serves on the board for the North Suburban YMCA — has strong roots with the organization, as she and her siblings grew up participating in various programs with her local YMCA while growing up in Wilmington, Del. So, at the medical center’s third anniversary celebration and open house on April 21, Banerjee and her husband, Stan Menezes, are hosting a party with specials on treatments and earmarking 10 percent of the day’s profits to the Strong Kids Charity at the North Suburban YMCA, an annual fundraising campaign which helps give financial assistance to families in need for YMCA programs. This year, many of the Northbrook residents and owners of Northfield’s Halo Laser & Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Promila Banerjee (left) and Stan Menezes, are donating 10 percent of their April 21 anniversary celebration proceeds to the North Suburban YMCA. PHOTOS SUBMITTED YMCA’s Strong Kids funds will go towards summer camp and swim lesson assistance. “We firmly believe in the YMCA because it benefits local woman and children,” Banerjee said. “We are in a very affluent community, but we don’t realize how many families need assistance to pay for summer camp or lifesaving swim lessons.” At their community open house, the Halo team will offer tours of their office, wine and hors d’oeuvres, and specials all day long, including Botox specials at $8.25 per unit, 25 percent off coupons for select services and raffles every half hour. In the last year alone, Halo has already donated $5,500 to Strong Kids. “When the Y has any event, we have a table there, so we go and support all of these events,” Menezes said. “[We have a table] to show that we support their causes.” Overall, Menezes said they’ve enjoyed having their business in Northfield and that their customers appreciate their efforts to give back to youths in need. “Being at Teddie Kossof Salon and giving back to the community has helped us a lot,” Menezes said. Halo Laser & Aesthetic Medicine is located on the second floor of the Teddie Kossof building, 281 N. Waukegan Road. The anniversary party will be held from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on April 21.
