Aria at Vail Cascade Resort Donates to Shaw Regional Cancer Center

Significant donation from Aria Spa made to Shaw Regional Cancer Center

Throughout the month of October, a portion of the proceeds from massages, facials and body treatments purchased at Vail Cascade’s Aria Spa were reserved to benefit the Shaw Regional Cancer Center. On Wednesday, December 2nd, spa director April Bingham presented a check in the amount of $3,850 to representatives of the Shaw Regional Cancer Center as a result of the initiative.  Peggy Carey, Vice President of Oncology at the Shaw Regional Cancer Center and Colleen Berga, Breast Imaging Coordinator at the Sonnenalp Breast Center both welcomed the donation along with Doug Smith and Sarah Paladino of the Vail Valley Medical Center. 

“Promotions such as this one at Aria don’t just raise funds, they help raise awareness for what we are trying to do to help our programming continue,” said Doug Smith, Vice President of Development and Marketing at the Vail Valley Medical Center.
This is the second year that Aria at Vail Cascade Resort has provided a donation to the center, and therapists at the spa were an integral part in communicating the need to support the local cause.  Bingham reported that the staff enjoyed feeling as though they were helping community members benefitting from the treatments that the Shaw Regional Cancer Center offers. 

“The Shaw Center is a true asset to the community,” said Bingham. “Our mission at Aria Spa is to encompass ‘health and wellness’ so it seemed natural to support such an important local organization.”

Located in Edwards, Colorado, the Shaw Regional Cancer Center provides services including prevention, diagnosis and treatment of most types of cancer and is a program that aims to “provide an innovative, high quality cancer treatment center that focuses on restoring the mind and the body, empowering cancer patients to become cancer survivors,” as stated in the center’s mission statement.

Aria Spa features more than 10,000 square feet of rest and relaxation found in 14 treatment rooms. Guests can also take advantage of one of the fitness center’s many programs, from group classes to personalized instruction.
