For A Good Cause: Awesome Beauty-Related Philanthropy Events!
I've heard about some pretty fantastic benefits happening soon with great beauty perks AND support to worthy causes! I wanted to pass the information on to you.
What: World Yacht's Beauty Brunch for the Cure

What: MAC Cosmetics Girls' Night Out
Where: MAC Store at the Summit, Birmingham, AL
Date: Sunday, September 25th
Time: 6 - 9 PM
Benefits: Birmingham AIDS Outreach
A $25 donation will get you a 30 minute one-on-one consultation with a fabulous MAC makeup artist! It's a private after-hours event and spots are filling up quickly, so call 205-977-2249 to reserve your consultation. My BFF Brittny and I will be there getting makeovers at 7 PM, come see us and make a donation! 100% of the proceeds will benefit Birmingham AIDS Outreach, an organization that helps fund medication, testing services, a food pantry, support, and so much more for people and families living with HIV/AIDS. I personally know a lot of people who are involved and volunteer there, they do so many wonderful things and genuinely care about the community.
Philanthropy AND beauty treatments, what could be better? Are there any similar events going on in your area that people should know about? I'd love to hear about more great happenings!
