JULY, 2016- TAMPA, FL. – Shane Mauldin and Frankie Ryan, co-owners of one of Tampa’s highest rated hair salons, HUSH Studio Salon, are organizing an event at Ferg’s Live in Channelside to help the community come together to contribute in a direct way to the victims of the Pulse Orlando tragedy. The event will benefit survivors and those coping in the aftermath of the loss or injury of their loved ones.
“When the horrific event occurred at Pulse, many of our family and friends reached out to contact us to make sure we were OK,” said Shane Mauldin. “There was no doubt in my mind that it could have been us in the crowd that night! We were so overwhelmed by the love that was shown to us we decided to take action to help the victims and families. We don’t have deep pockets but we have a lot of friends, and we are really great at cutting hair. So I thought this would be a great way to return the love that was shown to us.”
The event will be held at Ferg’s Live, across from Amalie Arena in Channelside, from 2pm to 6pm on Sunday, July 17. Dj's Gumbee, Haze, MpSoup, and Pezz will be spinning the very best dance music alongside local entertainers. Stylists from across Tampa Bay will donate their time to offer haircuts and blowouts to adults and kids for a donation of $20 or more. Ferg’s Live will offer drink specials, and they will donate a percentage of sales during the event. There will be an Ultimate raffle for luxury items and gift baskets, and prize giveaways.
The event is free to attend. Walk-up's for haircuts are welcome, but for a reserved time slot with one of the talented stylist please check out our Eventbrite page and book a haircut or blowout and we will contact you to schedule a time. Go to Eventbrite.com and look for Cut From the Heart, or click here. If attendance is not possible, a ticket purchase of $20 or more would be greatly appreciated.
Other businesses donating their time and talent to the event include: Jane’s World Talent Booking Agency, Brand Munki Marketing, Veranos Resources Marketing and PR, Evolve Salon Systems and Printing Depot.
“We hope the event gives everyone a way to do something about what happened at Pulse. Many of my friends and customers have said that they would like to help but didn’t know what to do. Now we are so proud to be the founders of Comb Together Inc., a 501.3c, and to have the ability to have a direct mechanism for people to come to the aid of the victims, families and survivors of this horrific incident. They will directly be comforted and aided by every donation, whether it’s money or time. We hope that everyone who comes to the event has a great time and continues along with us to support them, now and in the future.”
