Hope for Haiti Beauty Benefit

On February 7th a group of beauty industry professionals and about 50 attendees joined together for the Hope for Haiti Beauty Benefit which was organized by makeup artist Rhia Amio with the help of fellow makeup artist Joy David-Tilberg.  Attendees were asked to make a minimum donation of $25 to the Canadian Red Cross and all monies raised would go towards relief efforts in Haiti.  This fun filled day consisted of makeup and hair makeovers, pigging out on delicious cupcakes and food (well I could only speak for myself! haha), taking some before and after head shots, entering to win beauty prize raffles, and mingling with everyone all around.

At the end of the day everyone took home some awesome swag bags filled with goodies.  And in total we raised an amazing $2,354 which was way more than what was anticipated!

A big thank you to Rhia for organizing such a successful event.  Looking forward to more events like these!
