Royale Hair Parlor has been awarded $2,500 by Proctor and Gamble’s Wella Hairdressers at the Heart Charity Challenge that took place in May.
“We won $2,500 for our charity of choice, CASA. We chose this because of our children’s art show that helped raise money for CASA last May,” said Community Outreach Coordinator, Mary Lecount.
Royale Hair Parlor located in downtown Bloomington, has an Auxiliary Gallery with Gallery Walk that allows local artist to show off their artwork. Before the challenge the Parlor displayed and auctioned off artwork done by children and they entered the Charity Challenge to raise money to help continue their community outreach
The Parlor put on the art show to help donate money for Monroe County Court Appointed Special Advocates. CASA is a volunteer program that provides representation in juvenile court for child victims of physical abuse.
Lecount says that they will use the money and match a grant in their holiday newsletter, matching holiday donations to CASA.
The Parlor plans on putting on another children’s art show next year as well as other art events to help support local artists in the community.
