Leah Podollan is the “L” behind The L Spa & Wellness Centre. A self-acclaimed “spa junkie”, with a passion for health and wellness, Leah’s vision and focus at The L Spa & Wellness Centre is all about the fine attention to detail, personalized service, modern & trendy ~ yet tranquil and soul nurturing. Her ingenuity and flare for being a spa trendsetter brought Grande Prairie it’s first spa membership program. SPAwards recognized her ingenuity and awarded The L Spa with a “Top 50 Spas in Canada” award in 2011. Podollan continually looks for ways to grow the spa, contribute to the community in meaningful ways and raise awareness of the importance of health & wellness. “Spa’ing should be a healthy habit, not a luxury earmarked for once a year.”
Charity of Choice
Every month, we randomly draw for our “Member of the Month”. In recognition and appreciation of their support, we ask them to provide us the name of their “Charity of Choice”. The L Spa & Wellness Centre writes a cheque to that charity for 100% of that member’s monthly membership dues.
Throughout the year we spontaneously opt to contribute to the community through “random acts of giving”. One example is our “Lotions ‘n Potions ~ Basics and Bags” Campaign wherein we encouraged members of our spa and members of our facebook community to spring clean. From under bathroom sinks and vanity drawers to hall closets, collecting personal grooming needs like shampoos, gels, and hairsprays; to journals, craft supplies and towels; to overnight bags, backpacks and purses.
Other local annual campaigns we’ve become involved in include “Ladies In Red ~ Heart & Stroke Foundation” and “Celebrate Under The Stars for STARS. For every member who signs up during those specific fundraising campaigns, we contribute $10/month of their membership dues, each and every month for the lifetime of their membership to that charity.
We are always looking for creative and inspiring ways to “pay it forward”. For an annual “Head Shave Event” in support of the Cancer Society, we donated “Indian Head Massages” to each participant…..we can be creative and work together with you in ensuring that your fundraising event is a success. Bring us your ideas ~ let’s pay it forward together!!
