We held a “Cut Cancer” Event at the Salon. We offered discounts on services, raffle prices, free food and face painting. With the help of all these volunteers and all that attended the event, we were able to donate $3000.00 to the Harriet and Harry Gary Cancer Center and some contributions were donated to American Cancer Society and Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Special thanks to the following for providing us with free food and raffle prices: Aldo’s Restaurant, La Piastra, Zerio’s, Public Market, Silvana’s Catering, Tropical Sun, LGS Electric, Essential Salon Products, Masello, and United Beauty.
For the month of October, Parisian held 3 events to raise money for breast cancer research. We held “Jean Day” everyday for a month and whenever a staff member wore jeans, they donated $5.00. We also donated 3 baskets (each valued at $125.00) and raffled off tickets. Lastly, we sold Goldwell leave-in conditioner treatments for $5.00. We raised $1701.00 from all 3 events. 100% of the proceeds were donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation. Specials thanks to our staff and all of our clients that contributed to this great cause. The three winners of the baskets were: Maureen Peoples, Maria Tellechea and Carol Director.
We are holding a Holiday Food Drive to help gather goods to donate to local families in need during this holiday season. We are collecting any non-perishable items and have a collection box in the foyer. The more we collect, the more people we can feed. Sebastian is donating the Turkey.
We are also collecting goods for a “Wish List” put together for the Cromwell Children’s Home. This event is going on now through December 11th. These are for boys and girls ranging in age from 8-18 years old. Items include clothing, games, gift cards, etc.
