how we roll

Work doesn't end for us when the lights go out. We are constantly thinking of ways to contribute to our community. We host an annual "Arts for the Art's hair and fashion show, donating all proceeds to to Kids Making It and non-profit children's organization dedicated to the arts. And with the great success of our "Toys for Boys and Girls benefit, collecting gifts for toys for tots.

The staff volunteers their time and donates their services for various other organizations. We want to know we are helping those in need and we encourage everyone to do the same.
