Joel Schlessinger and the LovelySkin.com team recently made a donation to the V.J. & Angela Skutt Catholic High School’s annual fundraiser.

Skutt Catholic High School is located in Omaha, Nebraska. Its annual fundraiser, Angel Flight, accepts donations from select community businesses. Items donated go toward a silent auction where proceeds benefit the school’s operating expenses.

This year’s theme is Under Southern Skies: An Evening of SkyHawk Hospitality. It will take place on September 15, 2012.

Joel Schlessinger generously donated a gift certificate for a MicroPeel treatment to be redeemed at either the LovelySkin Spa or LovelySkin Spa Express.

MicroPeel is a three-step treatment that includes dermaplaning. A dermaplaning treatment leaves skin healthy, vibrant and younger-looking. To schedule a MicroPeel or a dermaplaning appointment, contact the LovelySkin Spa.

Joel Schlessinger is a strong supporter of education and is proud to help raise money for Omaha’s local schools.

Joel Schlessinger recently donated to the Transplant Games of America, a celebration of organ donors and organ transplants.

This athletic event celebrates life and those that have been touched by organ transplants. Donor families, transplant recipients and others who have been impacted by organ donors get together to take place in events such as basketball, golf, cycling, volleyball and more.

As a board-certified dermatologist, cosmetic surgeon and pediatrician, Joel Schlessinger is happy to support the miracle of organ transplants.

“We are pleased to support Michael and the Transplant Games,” Joel Schlessinger said.  “As a supporter of organ donation myself, I think it is important for these games and the increased awareness of the huge need for organ donation in this country.”

Every year, the Millard Public Schools Foundation honors top scholars and educators at its Hall of Fame Banquet.

Joel Schlessinger generously underwrites an outstanding high school teacher with the Skin Specialist Award for Excellence in Secondary Teaching.

This year’s recipient was Tyler Berzina, a Physics and AP Physics teacher at Millard West High School.

Mr. Berzina’s instructional strategies, application of technology and variety of approaches are second to none. He also establishes excellent relationships with students and creates an inviting classroom environment.

Some of Mr. Berzina’s awards include:

  • U.S. Department of Education American Star of Teaching for Nebraska
  • Millard Public Schools Employee of the Month
  • University of Nebraska-Lincoln Outstanding Mentor Award
  • National Science Foundation Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science.

Tyler is grateful for the award and for Joel Schlessinger’s support of the Millard Public Schools Foundation.

“It’s so nice to know that members of our community appreciate quality education by going above and beyond in supporting awards like the Hall of Fame. Thanks Dr. Schlessinger!”

Joel Schlessinger recently made a donation to MaxInMotion, a non-profit foundation started by Jonah Shacknai that helps financially disadvantaged children in Arizona participate in organized sports.

Joel Schlessinger supports this non-profit organization whole-heartedly.

“I was pleased to see that this charity was started for financially disadvantaged children as this is something that can make a huge difference in a child’s life,” said Joel Schlessinger.

This new non-profit organization started on June 7 in memory of Max Shacknai, Jonah Shacknai’s 6-year old son that passed away in July 2011.

“This is a great way to keep the memory alive of a young man that I knew and respected. Max Shacknai was a vivacious and intelligent child who would have loved to have seen this.”

MaxInMotion will provide children with opportunities to learn valuable life lessons such as teamwork, commitment, health and fitness. The foundation will work with other non-profit organizations that enroll children in athletics regardless of ethnicity, special needs or socioeconomic status.

In a time of tremendous cuts to school programs, Jonah Shacknai believes this organization will serve a dire need in many communities where children have limited opportunities.
