XEX Hair Gallery Hosts 10th Annual Holiday Event Benefiting Feeding America
December 03, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsDecember 3, 2014 - XEX is pleased to announce our 10th annual holiday benefit event. On Friday, December 12, 2014, XEX will be holding a "Cutting Away Hunger" event. 100% of the proceeds from hair services will be donated to Feeding America's efforts to feed Chicago and America's hungry. Complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be provided.
To further raise money for Feeding America, XEX will be featuring a Giving Tree at the salon. The Giving Tree is a small tree with ornaments containing gift certificates for area businesses. Individuals will be able to purchase an ornament at half of the value of the gift certificate included inside. Again, all proceeds from the Giving Tree will be donated to Feeding America.
The motivation for the benefit is the organizations it will be supporting. Feeding America is the largest charitable hunger-relief organization in the country and a close neighbor to our salon. Feeding America's mission is to help the 1 in 6 Americans struggling with hunger every day. Feeding America has determined that its aid relieves 25 million Americans each year and generates seven meals of food for every dollar in donation it receives.
The Giving Tree is a fantastic opportunity for your business to help raise money for an excellent organization this holiday season. With your help, we have been able to provide over 905.000 plates of food to Feeding America. We want to thank all of our local business owners and directors that we work with all year for the continuous support. We greatly appreciate any type of donation that you can provide for this year's silent auction and raffles. We are seeking donations of gift certificates, show tickets, gift baskets, hotel stays, ball game tickets, or anything that you would care to contribute.
We encourage you to stop by XEX on Friday, December 12, 2014, between 10:00 am and 7:00pm for an enjoyable day of giving and sharing in the holiday spirit. Visit our website for additional information.
