Sex and the City fundraiser boost for HOPE foundation
THE GLAMOUR of Sex and the City was recreated in spectacular style at the Carrig Beauty Salon and Spa last week, for a fundraiser in aid of the HOPE foundation.
More than 50 people came along to get top tips from a make-up artist who did a demonstration of products available to buy in the salon.
Clients also treated themselves to a make-over, as well as eyelash extensions and skin peels as well as makeup lessons.
The expert make-up artist had colour charts with her and was on hand to give advice to the ladies as they sipped on cosmos and appletinis, like their New York counterparts Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miran- da. Some people dressed up in high fashion like their SATC idols, while others decided to take a more relaxed approach to the enjoyable evening of fun and beauty.
The organisers managed to raise several hundred euro for the foundation, including the price of admission, takings from the raffle and a generous donation from the salon itself.
The Hope Foundation is a charitable organisation that works for the street children of Calcutta, who are often denied such basic needs as food, shelter, health-care, education and even love.
