Salon owner of The Gallery, and committee member, Lorenzo Colangelo, brought his clients, friends, and staff together to swap their scissors for golf clubs, in a charity fundraising event on 9th June 2017 to raise money for us.
It was a day packed with golfing challenges, with 110 clients and friends split into 28 teams, competing at West Kent Golf Club in Kent.
The competitive golf was followed by a 3 course sit down dinner and presentation evening, along with entertainment from comedian Agger Brown and a charity auction of prizes, including:
- Two Chelsea football tickets
- A £500.00 voucher and retail experience for Harry Collins & sons, The Queens jeweller
- Meal for 4 at The Kentish Hare Bidborough
- £1000 Gallery gift card
In total, the day raised a whopping £7,100 for Helping Hairdressers in Need and a great day was had by all.
“It was a fantastic day. My team went to enormous effort to arrange this day – even down to branded golf balls! Everyone really threw themselves into the spirit of it and our clients & friends were incredibly generous and we are delighted to have been able to raise this money for two amazing charities! It is definitely something we would like to repeat next year.” said Lorenzo Colangelo.
