In February, Future Professionals had the privilege of joining Hood College to help with hair and makeup for their performance of The Vagina Monologues, a play written by Eve Ensler involving mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. The play was performed to promote the V-Day Spotlight Campaign.
V-Day is a nonprofit corporation that distributes funds to grassroots, national and international organizations and programs that work to stop violence against women and girls. Since 1998, the V-Day movement has raised more than $50 million and in 2001, the corporation was named one of Worth Magazine’s “100 Best Charities.”
Bobby Wilson, currently an adaptive Future Professional, shared, “I had the opportunity while in high school and college to donate my time doing make-up and hair for drama productions so when the opportunity came up for our Design Team to participate in this production, I jumped at it!”
All proceeds from the event benefited Heartly House in Frederick, which provides services for victims and survivors of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and child abuse, and also the V-Day Spotlight Campaign.
