Paradise Auto Spa to donate portion of proceeds
MANY of our island's athletes strive to do their best in their respective sports both on the local scene and in international competitions.
However, their hard work and efforts go beyond just focusing on preparing for competition. Many times, heading out or participating in off-island events can become costly. Thus, players and teams go a step further by working to raise funds in hopes of defraying or covering certain costs. A locally owned company has teamed up with the Guam national women's soccer team in hopes of assisting in any way.
Just a mere mention of the women’s national soccer team when scheduling a car for services or purchasing gift certificates at Paradise Auto Spa will go that extra mile for the team. The new East Hagåtña company – located in the same building as East Island Tinting – has pledged to donate 10 percent of revenue earned during the month of June from customers who mention they’d like to help the women’s national soccer team.
“With this special promotion, it proves that the community supports the women’s national program in many more ways than just through Guam Football Association and their respective parents and/or guardians,” said Joe Roberto, managing member of Paradise Auto Spa.
“To support any sporting organization, like the women’s national soccer team, allows the team members to focus on their ability to train and develop for positive results rather than have to worry about financial issues,” he added.
Paradise Auto Spa, which was unveiled to the community during a grand reopening celebration alongside East Island Tinting on Oct. 31 of last year, provides various levels of car detailing packages starting from $25 for a “Body and Glow” auto and spa treatment to oxidation overspray and pin rust-rust removal starting from $425. The company also does headlight lens restoration starting from $150, according to the company’s sales brochure.
Paradise Auto Spa also will donate money from the sale of gift certificates during the promotional period – as long as the customer mentions assisting the women’s national soccer program.
The company donation will assist in funding a training camp and other equipment and training expenses as the women’s national soccer team prepares for the East Asian Football Championship preliminary round.
The preliminary tournament is scheduled for July 17 to 23 and will be held at LeoPalace in Yoña. The women’s team will be facing the CNMI and Hong Kong for a spot in the second round of the tournament in Hong Kong in December.
The second round will feature competition among teams including Chinese Taipei and the Matildas from Australia. The winner of the second round will then face off against countries like South Korea and 2011 Women’s World Cup champions Japan.
