Covington salon participates in fundraising event

Daniel Ross Salon and Skin Care, located in Covington, participated in a fundraising event, “Fashion SOULstice,” on April 26 to raise money to provide funding for a cosmetology school in Cambodia.

The event was organized by the nonprofit Justice & Soul Foundation and drew over 275 participants and raised more than $47,000.

A highlight of the evening was a fashion show with models styled by six area salons and one school. They included Pepper’s Salon, James Alan Salon and Spa, Lisa Power Salon, Paroba College, Robert Leonard Salon and Day Spa, Rosaline Hampton and William James Hair and Skin Studio.

The sold-out evening featured a silent auction and runway show.

The $47,000 will be used to teach cosmetology skills to young survivors of sex trafficking in the Foundation’s new vocation training program in Cambodia.

The foundation is wrapping up a six-week capitol campaigning, raising an additional $45,000 to build the school and salon in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
