October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Last weekend, I had the honor of working alongside Purple Salon & Spa owner, Ashley Riehl, on a fundraiser for domestic violence - Cuts, Cocktails, and Cupcakes for a Cause!
Ashley, her mother Heidi Markow, and stylist Jennifer Muntean took appointments all afternoon doing haircuts, purple extensions, and waxing services. We set up a Kids Zone upstairs with Halloween-inspired crafts and also did manicures with natural nail polish. Vendors on site sold hot dogs, cupcakes, clothing, baby products, childrens books, and provided services such as chair massages and henna.
Proceeds benefitted the Beginning Over Foundation - a local charity started by Ashley's own mother in response to her sisters death in 2005 from domestic violence.
The fundraiser was a huge success and we never could have accomplished it all without the support from the following businesses and friends/family, in no particular order:
Purple Salon & Spa
Ana McCaw Weathers
Revitalize With Rebekah
Jessica Fenon Photography
Sugar Babe Cupcakes
Travelers Song Henna
Fairlee Godshall, in remembrance of Kimberlee
Jillian Bickel & Family
...... and everyone who came out to purchase products and services! THANK YOU!
