On September 11, 2011, Salon Halo & Spa Joined up with North York General Hospital Foundation and hosted a fundraiser event called “Hair Cuts for an Amazing Hospital”.
This Fundraiser was to support the “Celebrity Human Race” which is an event full of excitement as teams and their celebrity teammates set out on an incredible journey to accumulate points by solving clues, answering trivia and navigating to secret locations. It’s a weekend series of exciting events held to raise funds for life saving equipment in North York General Hospital as well as for The BMO Financial Group Breast Diagnostic Centre.
Together as a team, we worked so very hard and we raised $3,000.00. The team was so amazed by our efforts that we got personally invited to attend the Celebrity Draft Party & the Award Reception Gala.
The Celebrity Draft Party which was held at Muzik Night Club in Downtown Toronto was to determine the team who raised the most amount of money. They then got to pick the celebrity they wanted to be on their team for the race.
The team we supported which was “The Tower of Power”, came in 2nd place raising $38,906.00. The Celebrity chosen was Catriona Le May Doan who is the Olympic Gold Medalist and fastest speed skater in the world.
The Awards Reception was a celebration uniting all participants, celebrities, sponsors and invited guests as they share memories from the last two days. Both of these events were such an amazing experience as we got to meet so many amazing people. Mariella and I (Stefania) are so grateful and excited at what we were able to accomplish. We are already looking forward to making an even greater impact next year in the fight against breast cancer.
