Beauty Bar Medispa is the Medispa that gives back. Since establishing their Give Back Program in 2020, a portion of all product proceeds sold at Beauty Bar Medispa is donated to a selected local nonprofit or charity for the calendar year. In addition to monetary donations, Beauty Bar Medispa facilitates several other fundraising opportunities throughout the year. Over the course of their program, Beauty Bar Medispa has worked with many great local charities including: NC Stop Human Trafficking, Joy Community Center and Soup Kitchen and most recently, Daughters of Worth. This year, their Give Back Program beneficiary is Riley’s Army.

Created in honor and in memory of their daughter, Riley Philpot, Doctors Kirk and Kelly Philpot called upon their own experiences with Riley’s 2006 diagnosis and how navigating the juggle of treatments, work, and maintaining family life was made more manageable with the aid of friends and family. Inspired by the help and support they received, Riley’s Army was founded with a mission to provide emotional, social, and financial assistance for children with cancer and their families. To date, they and their team have helped over 450 families who have heard the dreaded words, “your child has cancer.”

But they can’t do it alone – they need an ARMY!

Beauty Bar Medispa and Riley’s Army invite you to shop their Online Auction July 15th through the 26th, 2024. Not only will all proceeds go directly to Riley’s Army, but they will then be used to help a local family right here in ENC!
