A Turn on the Catwalk
J. Christian Studio in Hockessin makes community service a central part of its mission. Hosting four charity events a year, the salon will hold its annual Crazy Catwalk for Kidds event this month. This will be the second year that all proceeds from this fashion extravaganza will go toward Supporting Kidds, which provides help and encouragement to children of grieving families. “This was high on the food chain from the day we opened our doors,” salon owner J. Christian says of the company’s philanthropy. “It’s a chance to bring people and the community together.” Employees of J. Christian do everything from book the venue to style the models’ hair and makeup. The event itself is an overall collaborative effort, made possible entirely by volunteer staff, along with auction items and raffle prizes donated by local businesses. Christian aims to exceed last year’s fundraising total of $13,000. More information about J. Christian’s Catwalk for Kidds is available through its website, jchristianstudio.com, or by phone at 235-2306. —Katherine DiMaggio
