Paul Mitchell Schools Support City of Hopeby How You Can Give Back on 9/4/2008
Every year, City of Hope chooses an honoree who appoints a board of representatives from his or her industry to raise money for the organization. This year's honoree was Carmen DePasquale, a beloved and respected stylist whose beauty empire includes DePasquale the Spa, DePasquale Salon Systems, Artistic Academy of Hair Design and Aesthetics, ECRU New York, and Cures by AvancÃ©.
Carmenâ��s co-chairs for the 2008 â��Beauty Can Cureâ�� fundraising event included salon owners Sam Brocato and Van Council and beauty academy co-chair Winn Claybaugh.
â��Although Carmen has nothing to do with Paul Mitchell, I love and respect this man so much for who he is within the beauty industry,â�� Winn said. â��When he called, I absolutely wanted to get involved to support him.â�� At Winnâ��s invitation, the Paul Mitchell Schools raised over $37,000 in just 30 days, bringing the one-year campaign total to $1.2 million.
