October 2011 is PBA | NCA Dining For Change Month

Posted: August 23, 2011

The Beauty Industry Comes Together in Support of the PBA | NCA Disaster Relief Fund & CUT IT OUT

The Professional Beauty Association | National Cosmetology Association (PBA | NCA) invite spas across the country to participate in their annual Dining for Change fundraiser during the month of October.

Dining For Change encourages salon/spa professionals to come together throughout the month of October and host dinners and social gatherings to raise money for two great industry causes. Each guest is encouraged to make a small donation to the PBA | NCA Cares Fund, which supports CUT IT OUT, a program which fights domestic abuse, and PBA | NCA's Disaster Relief Fund, which helps salons and beauty professionals rebuild after natural disasters. The goal of Dining for Change is to raise more than $250,000 (an average of $25 per person) and show the world that the collective spirit of the beauty industry can effect change through these important charities.

CUT IT OUT is part of the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund, dedicated to fighting domestic abuse in communities around the nation. By placing collateral materials in salons/spas, CUT IT OUT educates beauty professionals on recognizing the signs of domestic abuse and how to safely refer clients to helpful resources.

The PBA | NCA Disaster Relief Fund helps salons destroyed by natural disasters rebuild and re-strengthen their business. Over the course of five decades, the fund has been there for professionals in times of dire need.
