Massage Envy is Back at the Table to Support Breast Cancer Cure
Lafayette's Massage Envy team will join their national counterparts again this year for the sixth annual Massage for the Cure, benefiting Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure of breast cancer. Date for this year's event is Tuesday, September 14. One-hour massage sessions will cost $49 with $15 from every massage going directly to the cause. The local crew hopes to top last year's donation of nearly $1,800. It was a sell out last year so call soon to reserve: 337-232-7040. Hours are 8 a.m.-10 p.m.
