Cosmetologists Chicago Gives Back..... Again!


Cosmetologists Chicago President Joseph Cartagena celebrates the re-opening of Elite Concepts Salon, Brooklyn, NY after Hurricane Sandy with owner Tony Fanelli, as he presents a check from Cosmetologists Chicago.

Always generous when it comes to giving back to salon owners and professionals in need, Cosmetologists Chicago (CC) recently helped five salon owners affected by the Hurricane Sandy storm that ravaged the East Coast.

All the proceeds from the CC holiday event in December 2013, featuring Fabio Sementilli and his Wella Professionals team of young I.C.A.N. talents were collected for the Cosmetologists Chicago Hurricane Assistance Fund. With donations for the evening totaling more than $8,000, CC began the search for those who needed help the most.

With assistance from CC Adjunct Director Frank Fulco of CosmoProf, CC identifie five salons that needed some additional help. Recently, CC President Joseph Cartagena visited Tony Fanelli’s salon in Brooklyn, NY and presented him with a check for $1600. Tony will be sharing some of that donation with staff members who endured personal losses from the storm.

Cosmetologists Chicago has a long history of helping salon pros:
• When Hurricane Katrina hit, CC was there with a donation of $40,000 to help salons rebuild.
• When a USA Team needed funding to compete in Korea, CC was there to sponsor them.
• From 1998 to 2006, CC partnered with Wella to host The Alternative Hair Show at America's Beauty Show. Collectively these mega-fashion & beauty events raised $2,000,000 that helped fund research into causes and cures for Leukemia both in the U.S. and the U.K.

And while CC has given back to those in need both nationally and globally, we pay close attention to those at home in the form of the Presidents Scholarships; annually providing salon pros with funds (up to $7500 over a career lifetime) to continue their professional education anywhere in the world.

If you are a member of Cosmetologists Chicago, be proud of your professional association and your participation in it. Together we help each other as well as those in need.
