On March 8, 2012, Milan Institute of Cosmetology in Reno, Nevada, hosted a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. An impressive $595 was raised in one day and donated to the association. The donation was 50% of the total revenue generated by the Milan Institute of Cosmetology Student Salon. Over 127 hair, nail and skin care services were performed by cosmeto logy students under instructor supervision. The goal of the American Heart Association is to help people build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. When people donate to the association, they are joining it in the fight against the No. 1 and No. 4 killers in the U.S. – heart disease and stroke. Donations support such life-saving efforts as research, education, advocating for better health, improving patient care and reaching populations at risk.
The American Heart Association Fundraiser was a success thanks to the support of the Milan Institute of Cosmetology students and staff. The student salon received more clients than on a typical Thursday. Clients were happy to know that the cost of their haircut, highlights, pedicure, facial and other services that day would help support a worthy cause. Students
