Dr. Palm and Staff of Art of Skin MD with Mayor Joe Kellejian and Chamber of Commerce Members
The Grand Opening of Art of Skin MD on July 19th, 2012 was a huge success! Dr. Melanie Palm and the staff of Art of Skin MD would like to thank all of the patients, Chamber of Commerce members, the mayor of Solana Beach, industry partners, neighboring businesses, and the friends of Art of Skin MD for such a lovely evening. It exceeded our expectations! We are extremely happy to have made our dermatology home in sunny Solana Beach, CA.

The evening included delicious bites and libations by Woody’s and phenomenal entertainment by acoustical talent Ottopilot.
Over 200 guests enjoyed the festivities including cupcakes from Cupcake Love and gift bags with oodles of swag including local Beachwalk businesses gift cards, discount vouchers for Art of Skin MD, and chocolate delectables by Jer’s Chocolates.
Most importantly, the evening’s silent auction and opportunity drawings raised over $3000 for Angel Faces. The funds raised will help support Angel Faces in its Annual Retreat, as well as its ongoing efforts to optimize the potential of adolescent girls whom have sustained burn or traumatic injuries.
Silent auction and opportunity drawings included a golf retreat to La Costa Resort, dining and entertainment along the 101 in Solana Beach, and rejuvenation specials by Dr. Palm, including Botox, Dysport, and Restylane treatments. The most coveted prize, a $4000 treatment of LaViv, was announced near the end of the evening.
Art of Skin MD is off to a spectacular support and we thank the community of Solana Beach for being so supportive in all of our efforts.
