(October 14, 2013) - On Sunday, October 6, 2013, Palmer Square hosted a new event called Stylin’ on the Square featuring the Salon Pure Cut-a-thon. This event, held on Palmer Square in Princeton, went a long way to raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease and funds for research. This was thanks to the efforts of Palmer Square Management and Salon Pure, and the support of other participating Palmer Square retailers.
On a beautiful fall afternoon, supporters chose from a variety of salon services in Salon Pure’s Cut-a-Thon tent. All professional stylists donated their time, talent and energy. In addition to getting their hair cut, children could purchase glitter tattoos provided by jaZams or Name Art created by Cranbury Station Galleries. A DJ provided by Palmer Square raised the energy level at the event, and food from Winberie’s Restaurant and Bar and Chez Alice Gourmet Café and Bakery was available on the green. Two fashion shows were held featuring styles from Ann Taylor, Bucks County Dry Goods, Urban Grace, Jack Wills, Lace Silhouette Lingerie, Botari, Dandelion, Brooks Brothers and Palm Place, a Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store and lululemon athletica hosted a yoga demonstrations.
100% of the proceeds raised from the event – close to $2500 - were donated to The Parkinson Alliance.
This event was initiated by Heather Rizzo and Amy Kaczowski, owners of Salon Pure. They feel strongly about giving back and have a personal connection to the Parkinson’s community. They approached Palmer Square Management with this concept, and Palmer Square then executed it flawlessly, successfully involving other Palmer Square merchants.
“We were so grateful that Salon Pure and Palmer Square chose to design an event to benefit Parkinson’s research,” states Marty Tuchman, Chairman of The Parkinson Alliance. “With a grassroots event like this, there is not only a chance to raise much needed funds for research, but it also raises awareness of the disease and that is key.”
