Jonni’s Styling Studio and Kamloops YMCA ‘Paint the City Pink’ first event a huge success

October 10, 2013 - 3:48 PM

Jonni’s Styling Studio and the Kamloops YMCA teamed up again this year to ‘Paint the City Pink’ for Breast Cancer Awareness. On September 28th the downtown YMCA and Jonni’s provided Pink Ink Streaks (temporary vegetable based color), pink hair extensions and pink feathers to participants for a donation.

Last year Paint the City Pink raised and donated over $2,000 to the RIH Cancer Clinic. After Saturday’s event, they are well on their way to their goal, raising over $1,200. The staff at Jonni’s and the YMCA would like to express their appreciation to all those who came out to support this important cause.

For those who were not able to make it out on Saturday, the second half of the fundraising event is being held on October 17th, from 8:30am – 11:30am at the North Shore YMCA. No appointment is necessary and everyone is welcome! For those who participate, free gifts will be given on behalf of Paul Mitchell Systems.
