Cincy Chic Announces Earnings for "High Performance at 18/8"
The Dragonfly Foundation receives $1,000 from recent event hosted at 18/8 Fine Men's Salon
By: Cincy Chic
More than 125 attendees participated in the event that included a meet-and-greet with FC Cincinnati players, viewing exotic cars, a bourbon and craft beer tasting, complimentary chair massages from Elements Massage, pop-up shops of local businesses, and special pricing on gift baskets/gift certificates for 18/8 services.
Proceeds were raised through online ticket sales, raffle ticket sales, cash donations, along with a generous donation from the event host, 18/8 Fine Men's Salon. " The Dragonfly Foundation's mission is critical and near and dear to my heart given I had major medical issues with my son when he was very young," says Chris Brown, Owner of 18/8 Fine Men's Salon. "I would love to find ways to partner with them in the future."
"The money raised from this event will help us purchase in-room hospital meal cards so that parents don't have leave their child's bedside and walk four buildings over to grab a meal," says Ria Davidson, Co-Founder of the Dragonfly Foundation. "Instead, they can stay with their child and have a meal in the room, which is especially important for newly diagnosed patients."
"We are so grateful for the $1,000 donation, but are also appreciative of the support and awareness that was raised at this event," says Davidson. "We can't do what we do without help."
Sponsors of this event included: Cincy Chic, Cincinnati Profile, FC Cincinnati, Elements Massage, Ziv Trading Co., and THE LEGEND OF TARZAN.
