As a prelude to the night’s festivities, the day’s activities also aim to
fundraise for the charity. From 11am to 6pm, the Hall will be open for the
public to attend a forum called “Skin Salon”, a gathering of speakers and
vendors on the issues of skin health, the ingredients in beauty, body and
skin care products, corporate social responsibility, and the importance of
buying “clean” products. Special guest speaker is Author and local women’s
health advocate Lorna Vanderheaghe .

The concept for the event came together by two local entrepreneurs in the
“clean” beauty industry. Arline Trividic is the owner of Smell This Aromatherapy, a local manufacturer of “clean” skin care products. Estie Gonzalez owns and
operates Derma Bright Clinic.
Beauty Night Society is celebrating its 36, 000 makeover for impoverished women and youth. The monies raised will help them increase the number of makeovers given each week from 250 to 300. “Currently we have 10 organizations on wait list who would like us to deliver services to their participants. We are hoping to raise the resources we need to be able to meet the growing need,” says Beauty Night founder, Caroline MacGillivray.
