Celebrate With City of Hope

Michele Musgrove | July 9, 2014 | 10:42 AM

Celebrate With City of HopeIt’s a big weekend in Vegas coming up in professional beauty. Before Cosmoprof North America and the North American Hairstyling Awards, the salon community comes together to “do good” on Saturday, July 12, via the annual City of Hope Spirit of Life Award Gala at Mandalay Bay. The industry-wide benefit raises funds and awareness for the City of Hope research hospital’s efforts to find cures and treatments for cancer and other diseases.

This year’s honoree is Harlan Kirschner, president of The Kirschner Group, and the special evening includes a concert by music legend (and hair icon) Michael Bolton. There’s a silent auction that is hosted online—so anyone can participate and earn the amazing items (new selections just added July 3rd)! Also, Jinny Beauty Corp. has graciously donated a 2014 Mini Cooper car to be given away to one lucky winner that night.

The MODERN SALON Media team will be there to cover and report on all festivities, and to preview findings from our just completed Healthy Hairdresser research project, in cooperation with City of Hope.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was.
