Grinch Gone Mild: Hyatt Scottsdale Offers Limited-Time Spa Services with Heart

Who’s cuddly as a cactus and green all over? You guessed it. That nasty wasty mean ol’ Mr. Grinch. But he’s really a good guy at heart – or so the story goes. And the folks at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch are tapping into the spirit of this indelible character with green-themed services that come with a side of heart.

From Saturday, November 13 through Sunday, November 21, the Hyatt’s Spa and Salon Avania is celebrating the Grinch’s Arizona appearance with special green offerings. Book one or more of these Grinchy but good treatments and receive two complimentary tickets to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical,” while supply lasts. Catch the Grinch at ASU Gammage, with performances Wednesday, November 17 through Sunday, November 21.

And it gets better. For every green service booked, Hyatt will donate 20% of the proceeds to Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) – a medical center completely dedicated to children in Arizona and states throughout the Southwest. Hyatt is a strong supporter of PCH and on December 16, salon and spa staff are making their merry way to the hospital to give teens mini mani and pedis,  hair styles and makeup applications. Rumor is that Mr. Grinch himself will be coming along too. Listen to Mix 96.9 for details.
