The Chrysalis Inn & Spa was proud to present their September spa donation in the amount of $1,947 to Blue Skies for Children, a local non-profit serving local homeless, low-income and foster children in Whatcom County. Their programs focus on raising hope and self-esteem by sponsoring enrichment activities such as music, dance, art, sports, martial arts and so much more. They grant one-time Little Wishes and loan musical instruments. Their seasonal distribution programs provide brand new shoes, back-to-school backpacks and warm winter coats. They administer a Driver’s Education Scholarship Program and the Josh Fueston Swim to Live Program. Blue Skies also serves as the distribution arm for Mattress Firm’s Foster Kids program.

The Chrysalis, a locally owned hotel, spa and restaurant on Fairhaven’s waterfront, has given over $16,000 to Whatcom County non-profits since February of this year when owner, Mike Keenan, started donating one percent of monthly spa revenues. October’s recipient will be Sean Humphrey House, a family-home setting that allows residents combatting HIV/AIDS to maintain independent fulfilling lives while having access to support services in order to remain healthy.
