Liz Rapalus, Theory & Final Phase Leader from Temple Frederick was one of the “First 100” Paul Mitchell FUNraisers across the United States to earn a spot to Paul Mitchell Schools FUNraising Gala in Hollywood, California this past May! Liz used her professional expertise to offer Future Professionals a unique opportunity to gain experience working with vibrant “coloring book” hair styles.
Each year Paul Mitchell Schools FUNraising Campaign honors and rewards the first 100 Future Professionals, team members, and Paul Mitchell National Educators who raise $3,000 in donations for charity with an opportunity to attend this exclusive event.
“It’s all about giving a little bit of you back to those that surround you. I was honored to be one of the First 100 this year and was even more excited to bring back the knowledge of what I learned in Hollywood with the Future Professionals here in Frederick. It was an awesome experience!” said Liz.
Winners of the “First 100” also enjoyed a “meet and greet” photo op with celebrity guests plus a day of hands-on education the next day with longhair expert Martin Parsons, master barber Darrin “DL” Lyons, and Debra Dietrich.
Charities that benefitted from this year’s FUNraising campaign included the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation, Gary Sinise Foundation, Cancer Schmancer, Leeza’s Care Connection, CAST, Magic Johnson Foundation, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, No Limits, Food 4 Africa
