FUNDRAISER: Pigtails, Panache & Pageantry Hair Show


Your Dream Day is working with a fantastic organization, Franciscan Haircuts from the Heart, on a fundraising event this coming Saturday, April 18, 2009, at the Kingsgate Marriott in Cincinnati. Pigtails, Panache and Pageantry is a celebrity hair show which features a silent and live auction and sitdown dinner.

All proceeds will benefit Franciscan Haircuts from the Heart. This event is the main fundraiser for their organization and raises a large percentage of our operating budget to provide these services. With the instability of our economy impacting more and more people, Franciscan Haircuts from the Heart is servicing a greater number of clients not only in its salon in Over-the-Rhine but in salons throughout Cincinnati accepting vouchers. 


We are still in need of silent auction items for the event. Your Dream Day has supported your organization and business in the past by referring clients, inviting you to our networking events and keeping you posted on ways to improve your business. I would hope that, in my time of need, you will be willing to donate an item to help this event be a success. We are also trying to increase the number of guests attending this year's event.

Ways that you can help:

*Donate a gift certificate for your product or service for the silent auction or goody bags. Examples might include a free night's hotel stay, a gift certificate toward a specific service you offer, a free limo ride, a goody basket with a selection of items or products that you offer, or a cash sponsorship. To do so, reply to the ticket attached to this email and let me know what you plan to pledge. You must purchase a ticket for $75 to attend the event itself. You will get a tax donation note for your 2009 tax return for doing this. You can bring this down to our new Blue Ash office or we can pick it up from you, whichever is easier.

*Donate your service to the event itself. We still need party lighting for the runway show and a photographer to shoot the event. The photographer must provide a high res DVD of the images and it will be featured by Mitchell's on their promotional materials and in the portfolio of models from New View Models. And, of course, on Your Dream Day and Franciscan Haircuts from the Heart's websites!

*Promote the event on your blog. I have a video posted on myspace and Facebook and I'd be happy to send you the code for this.

*Attend the event as a guest. Tickets are $75 per person or $550 per table. Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here. You can also make a one time donation by clicking on this link as well.

The event will feature an elegant dinner and a live & silent auction. The highlight of the evening, however, will be our signature hair show event that will feature local business and community leaders escorting models who will be sporting fabulous hair styles designed by Mitchell's and Pump Salon. We also have 15 local celebrities that will be escorting models, provided by New View Models, on the runway.

In this struggling economy, non profit organizations serving the community need all the help and support they can to serve the underprivelaged in our area. Thank you again for your consideration in helping Franciscan Haircuts from the Heart and Your Dream Day!
