When we hear the words fundraising and nonprofit we often dream up images of golf outings, suit/ tie galas and donor appeal letters. Raising money for a good cause doesn’t have to involve the ordinary or expected - at least not when you are City of Hope Philadelphia!
Tonight, we’re breaking out our leg warms and a big ‘ole bottle of hairspray for the 17th Annual HopeCuts Hair Competition. Join us for some hair-raising fun, with an 80s twist as Philadelphia’s top salons present outrageous displays of hair and makeup during Stray Cat Strut : A Tribute to the 80s. Festivities kick-off tonight at 8pm at Voyeur Night Club. The night’s packed agenda includes great music, live performances, prizes, drink specials, dancing and the hair competition. Categories will include:
- Best in Show
- Best Make Up
- Best Use of Hair Color
- Most Intricate
- Most Outrageous
- Best Use of Hairball Theme
Guest judges will include hair industry professionals, media representatives, theater professionals, bloggers and the general public. Philly Loves Fun is proud to be selected as a first-time judge for 2012!
Strut on down to Voyeur tonight and pay only $10 with a VIP pass, and $25 without one. VIP passes are found at participating salons, retail shops, restaurants, cafes and other venues around town. If you can’t find one, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
City of Hope Philadelphia is one of our designated charity partners. We love their creative events that raise money and awareness for cancer and HIV/AIDS research and treatment programs. Our Philly Loves Fun/Aversa PR team had a wonderful a day of sun and family fun at Walk of Hope in September and we look forward to a dazzling line-up of lifestyle-oriented events coming up in the the future!
