TROY, MI--(Marketwire - April 12, 2010) - Who would have thought that a day of pampering yourself with a manicure and a pedicure could help children suffering from cancer? Queen for a Day (QFAD) and Heroes, a non-profit organization designed to raise the self-esteem and the self-confidence of children coping with cancer, has made that possible. QFAD/Heroes is sponsoring a special day, the 7th Annual Beauty Bash, at the Excel Academies of Cosmetology in Troy on Tuesday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
A donation of $35 will buy you a combination of any two salon services, and a donation of $50 will buy you two salon services, an exclusive Queen for a Day rhinestone pin and a gift bag. Participants can choose from a custom facial, paraffin dip, conditioning hair treatment, manicure, pedicure or a hairstyle and cut. Donors will have an opportunity to take part in a silent auction featuring items donated by local businesses, gift certificates, various gift baskets and much more. Local vendors will also hold a craft show for attendees to enjoy. Guests do not need to use the salon services to participate in the silent auction or craft show. Other activities will include mini-massages, a free raffle and light refreshments.
Call (248) 828-9972 to book your appointment. Excel Academies of Cosmetology in Troy is located at Rochester and Square Lake Roads, south of M-59. All proceeds will benefit the Metro Detroit Chapter of Queen for a Day and Heroes.
QFAD/Heroes hosts hospital and private visits at William Beaumont Hospital, Children's Hospital of Michigan, Hurley Hospital in Flint, U of M/Mott's Children's Hospital, St. Johns Hospital-Van Eslander, Cancer Center; and various special needs camps throughout Michigan.
Established in 2000 by former Miss Teen USA All American Jenna Edwards, QFAD now operates internationally in 27 cities, including a chapter in South Africa. Since its inception in October 2002, the Metro Detroit chapter has visited over 1,500 children. For more information, visit www.detroitqfad.com or www.heroes-michigan.com.
