On August 13, 2012, Salon 01 partnered with the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund to help raise money for one of their wish children. On August 13, 2012, 20% of all proceeds, from service and retail sales, went towards granting a wish for Erin Mayhugh, a 16 year old Leukemia patient from Greenfield, Indiana. Her wish is to go to Disneyworld. During the event on August 13, Salon 01 also treated Erin to a manicure and pedicure.
Salon 01 is a high-end, full-service hair salon, located in a free standing, 15,000 sq ft building at 200 City Center Drive, on the Monon Trail, in Carmel. Salon 01 proudly supports a variety of community and not-for-profit organizations through product and monetary donations. Additionally, Salon 01 hosts events annually to support such organizations as the American Heart Association and the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund.
Salon 01 had Pacemates and the Pacers Fan Van onsite during the fundraising event. They handed out t-shirts, backpacks Pacemate autograph cards and many other fun novelties.
Fox 59 and Current In Carmel newspaper attended the event and interviewed Salon 01 owner, Micki Stirsman.
“Salon 01 has supported the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund many years. Contributing to Erin’s wish was a pleasure. This was her first manicure and pedicure, and I don’t think it will be her last. We all had smiles on our faces today,” said Micki Stirsman, Creative Director and Owner of Salon 01. “We strive to give back in many unique ways, and helping Erin through the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund is definitely a cause that is dear to my heart.”
Through the service and product sales on August 13, as well as an additional contribution from Micki and David Stirsman, the donation to help grant Erin’s wish equals $2,500.
