Salon EveLeila’s owner, Mindy Burgess, asked me in May if they could do a fundraiser for the Jarett Yoder Memorial Fund. Of course, I was humbled. Mindy has been doing my hair for many years, and had to listen to me talk about Jarett the whole time! Also, I was lucky enough to have Salon EveLeila take care of my girls and I for our wedding on July 7, 2012.
Mindy and her team organized the entire fundraiser in two months and offered 100% of the proceeds to the Jarett Yoder Memorial Fund. They went above and beyond for this event. Everybody was in awe! They had a HUGE chinese auction, colored hair extensions, hair braiding, a bake sale, mini-manicures, face painting, carnival games, as well as hotdogs and a fabulous spread from Sofrito! It was Incredible!
July 28, 2013 the fundraiser was from 12p-4p and raised $2124!!!!! It was AMAZING! There are no words to describe the emotions that day. Thank you to Salon EveLeila for supporting the Jarett Yoder Memorial Fund and also being a huge support system for myself and my family during this tragedy.
