Glamming It Up For a Great Cause

There are few things that hit closer to home as a mommy than the idea that there are children, teens and young adults who are battling with cancer or other life threatening diseases. This is a reality for many families in our Charlotte community, but a new local non-profit is helping during these difficult times.

The Sandbox ( helps patients and their families through a wide spectrum of offerings and services, so they can focus on the two most important factors – Believing and Healing! They restore belief and positivity, and walk alongside the families to give them support, both emotionally and financially, during the most tumultuous times of their lives.

While The Sandbox offers support to families throughout the year, but the largest event they hold is the prom for teens and young adults who are patients at Levine Children’s Hospital. This year they are hosting “An Evening of Believing”, and we need YOUR help to make this an amazing night for these very deserving kids.

This will be my second year as a team member of “The Glam Squad”! We are in charge of recruiting hair stylists and make-up artiest to get the kids ready for the prom.

You can help us reach our goal of sending 150 patients and their guests by asking your hair stylist to get involved and donate their time with the Glam Squad on the night of the prom.

The prom will be held Friday, September 28th 2012 – hair stylists will be needed from approximately 4PM until 7PM at the Aveda Institute in uptown Charlotte. Your hair stylist can learn more by visiting to sign up, or they are welcome to email the team leader, Lareina, at

Check out the video from “An Evening of Stars” Prom 2011 – You’ll see the impact this amazing evening had on the kids who attended.
