April 14, 2014

In Recognition of the Anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings, G2O Spa and Salon and EMERGE Spa and Salon will Donate 20% of Proceeds to Celeste Corcoran and Daughter Sydney

During the week of April 14-18, 2014, G2O Spa and Salon and EMERGE Spa and Salon, operated by parent company Joymark Inc. and located on Newbury Street in Boston, MA, will honor fellow stylist and Boston Marathon bombing victim, Celeste Corcoran and daughter Sydney, by donating 20% of its proceeds from spa and salon services to the Celeste and Sydney Fund. The fund was established in support of Corcoran and her daughter who were severely injured due to the marathon bombings. Corcoran, stylist at EMERGE, lost both of her legs from her knee down while Sydney suffered from shrapnel wounds and arterial damage. Last year, G2O and EMERGE hosted the successful Celeste-A-Thon event where over 20 businesses in Greater Boston and beyond joined together to raise awareness and over $121,000 for Corcoran and her daughter.

Patrons can visit G2O and EMERGE anytime during the week of April 14 – 18, 2014 to show their support. To book an appointment at G2O, visit or call 617-262-2220. For appointments at EMERGE, visit or call 617-437-0006. Patrons are encouraged to book appointments in advance.

About G2O Spa + Salon:

Providing the formula for the essentials of life, G2O is Boston’s award-winning day spa resort for men, women and couples. Originally opening in 1994 as Giuliano Spa for Beauty & Wellness, G2O underwent several expansions at its first location on Newbury Street before moving into its all-new home at 278 Newbury Street in 2010. To create G2O’s present home, Founder and CEO Joyce Hampers purchased two historic Newbury Street brownstones in 2008, subsequently joining them to form one unified space. By its reopening in August of 2010, the resulting structure had been completely transformed to create a totally “green” building. In contrast to its original location just a block away, the all-new G2O celebrates a new generation of innovative spa and salon services and amenities ranging from Brine Inhalation Therapy to the Bali Paradise Experience, Acupuncture treatments, state-of-the-art sunless tanning, a penthouse lounge and terrace, a Skylight Hot Tub, a full retail shop and more. Salon services include haircuts, highlighting, color technology, hair repair Keratin treatments and bridal styling, in addition to manicures, pedicures and make-up application.

G2O is located at 278 Newbury Street in Boston in the heart of the Back Bay. For more information, call 617.262.2200, or visit
