- You would think with the long line down 41st street waiting to get in the club Arena and DJ Zeke Thomas mixing it up old school that people were out for a regular night of fun and a little debauchery –but it was only 7 pm. Actually, Arena opened it’s doors to raise money for the charity GlamourGals and the theme was pink and I was wearing it! I was excited to be handed a beautiful pink satchel full of make up on my way in!
GlamourGals mission is to inspire teens to provide beauty makeovers to elderly women living in senior homes. Besides teaching business and professional skills, girls get involved in various programs such as business management, research, writing and communication. It also teaches them compassion and touches the lives of both the younger and older women that get involved.
