Join Paul Wilson, an owner of Art + Science Salons, in Chicago and Evanston, Illinois and David Raccuglia, founder of American Crew, for the annual “Art and Soul Evening of Fashion and Music” on Friday, November 8th, at Chicago’s iconic Park West, to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Greater Illinois. Last year, their inaugural party, sold out and raised over $12,000 to benefit Down Syndrome research and advocation.

Each year Art +Science partners with a different organization to raise money for a worthy cause. This year’s fundraising campaign for CFF is particularly dear. Erica Netter, an Art+Science colorist, and her husband Sam, recently gave birth to a son named Jameson, who was born with the genetic disease. Art and Soul will dedicate this year’s event to help children like Jameson and thousands of others afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis. With the right funding and research, children with CF can have their average life expectancy raised from their late thirties to mid to late fifties.

This evening of fashion and music, will feature a hair runway show, styling lounges, silent auction, raffles, the band Purple Apple and a special guest performance by a headliner at this year’s Lollapalooza. Produced by Art + Science Salons, with generous support from beauty industry friends and sponsors, all proceeds will benefit CFF, a nonprofit donor organization, "focused on supporting the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure."

A General Admission $85 Ticket will offer four hours open bar and full access to the show with a Bumble and Bumble gift bag. A VIP $160 ticket will offer access to one of two exclusive VIP lounges overlooking the stage, as well as a premium gift bag by Kerastase Paris, Shu Uemura, and many others.
