On Tuesday 8th March 2016, De Lorenzo supported the launch for The Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave held in Martin Place, Sydney. With a terrific team of De Lorenzo hair stylists, 84 people signed up to get sponsored to shave or colour their hair to help people with blood cancer. The Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave began back in 1998 and is one of Australia’s biggest fundraising events! More than 12,000 Australians will be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma this year – equivalent to 34 people every day. Money raised will give families the emotional and practical support they need, and fund urgent research to save lives.
The total collected on the day was $4,500 just from the bucket collections, sprays and walk up shaves. The participants who attended individually raised money themselves which equated to much higher amounts. The De Lorenzo team had a great day supporting such a worthy cause. The following team members deserve a huge thank you, Bianca from Glammar Hair, Karolyn from KP Hairdesign, Jenny from Hornsby Heights Hairdressing and the Team from La Unica Salon.
