What a great event! One of my Green Feng Shui clients, Arame Salon & Spa in Port Jefferson, NY, hosted a local Clean Water fund raiser campaign for Earth Month. They raised nearly $1,700 to support the effort.
The funds were raised through two avenues: First, Arame donated $5 for every haircut during the month of April. Second, Arame enlisted the help of Port Jefferson High School students with the aid of Ms. Dawn DeLeonardis. Ms. DeLeonardis and her students created water-themed art projects, in various mediums, to celebrate Port Jefferson’s heritage and connection with the local Long Island water habitat. These art pieces were displayed at Arame at an Art Sale held on Thursday, April 30 at 7:00 pm, with refreshments and live folk music, provided by the students. All proceeds have been donated to Clean Ocean Action.
Among those present offering their support at the event was former Port Jefferson Village mayor, Jean Garant and her daughter, current mayoral candidate, Margot Garant, Attorney-at-law.
An Aveda salon, Arame Salon & Spa participated in Aveda’s Earth Day 2009 campaign “Clean Water: It Only Takes Baby Steps”. Aveda representatives, Jennifer Manganillo and Christine Lee were also on hand to help with the successful event. Aveda’s fund raising efforts have a goal of $3 million for global and local clean water projects. What began as a day of awareness became $11 million raised for the Earth.
