Makeovers Salon & Spa’s “Fashion for a Cause” event held last week, which was a fundraiser for Wheels for Avery, was a tremendous success. Over $5,000 (in donations) was raised and will help Avery Austin, a severly disabled Easton boy, get the wheelchair he needs.
It was an evening of fashion and fun for a good cause. Attendees were able to see the latest styles in hair color and design, make-up, clothing and accessories during the Runway Show which featured items from Posh Boutique, Rock Reunion Clothing, Timeless Antiques, B-Buckled, The Loft and Wella.
In addition to the runway models, five local Makeover contest winners debuted their new personal styles on the runway: Emily Candora, a cancer survivor who removed her wig for the first time and revealed her new edgy, purple hairstyle (courtesy of salon co-owner and renowned stylist Edward Blum); Colette Maillett; Brenda Morganti and Ann Taylor.
Guests also enjoyed pre-show boutique shopping, wine tasting courtesy of The Wine Guys, music courtesy of Rakish Productions and food from Makeovers’ own Gourmet Café. Sponsors include Rentals Unlimited, William Byer, Rose Hill Garden and Richard Bertone Photography.

“We’re really happy that we were able to all come together and help the Austin family. They’re wonderful people who are facing some incredible challenges. We want to thank everyone – our guests, our staff, the vendors and sponsors – for all their support,” noted salon owners Edward and Norah Blum.
