If you're a fan of over-the-top hair, make-up and women - doing good things in this community - do we have a win-win-win event for you!
Soroptimist International of Washoe County is hosting its third annual "Hair and Makeup Artist of the Year" competition this weekend. It is your chance to watch artists work their magic - live on stage - as they compete for a $1,000 cash grand prize. More than 30 people will be participating in the contest that results in some Hollywood-style looks.
This is a fundraising event for Soroptimist International of Washoe County, which supports a host of organizations that help women and children in our area. Most notably, they work with Kids Kottage and the Totes for Kids program, which provides clothing and supplies for children who are removed from their homes. The local chapter also participates in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and provides senior women in need with a surprise gift box filled with a Walmart gift card, greeting cards, office supplies and stamps. Also, the fundraising group donates to organizations such as the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Ronald McDonald House of Reno, and the Committee to Aid Abused Women (CAAW).
