Le MedSpa to host makeover project
Paule Stiefler dreamed of a complete makeover for three years.
Not for herself, but for two lucky winners.
Stiefler, who serves as director of Le MedSpa at 2530 N. Eighth St., Suite 205, worked with Angel Goodman, an esthetician and laser technician at Le MedSpa, to recruit a bevy of local health and lifestyle experts to participate in the Body & Soul Makeover project. The project will involve a fitness, appearance and lifestyle makeover for one woman and one man by experts at Le MedSpa, Colorado West Dermatology, Crossroads Fitness, Jo’s Clothes and Oral Health Care Partners. Services also will be provided by Paula Anderson of Eat Well – Be Well, Marcus Straub of Life is Great Coaching, Chad Mahlum of Lifestyle Photography, Hope Carlton of Perfect Touch Makeup, and Kathleen Copeland of Salon Panache.
Nominations for the makeover will be accepted through July 31 at the spa. Applications are available at the spa’s location and on its website as well as the website for MBC Grand Radio Station. Forms should include two current photos of the person being nominated. Candidates must be 18 or older.
The ideal candidate for the makeover “may be somebody who is very altruistic but never takes care of themselves and needs help, or somebody who does a ton of volunteer work, somebody deserving of this attention and help,” Stiefler said.
Stiefler said ideal candidates will be people who can benefit from all of the services that are being volunteered by participants in the makeover “dream team.” Le MedSpa will pick three female finalists and three male finalists during the first week of August and the “dream team” members will pick the two finalists, one from each gender, on Aug. 10.
On Aug. 13, the two finalists will begin a 12-week transformation. Their makeover results will be revealed at an event Nov. 8. Tickets for the event, which will feature appetizers, wine and “before” videos and “after” results, will go on sale at the spa and MBC Grand Radio beginning Oct. 15. Stiefler said proceeds from the event will benefit Mesa County Partners.
Stiefler said everyone involved in the project so far has been willing to donate their time and services and she hopes the makeover project is perceived as a positive event for the Grand Valley, especially in tough economic times.
“Sometimes you just want to do something that’s not necessarily business,” Stiefler said. “I like to give, to give in a different way.”
