Weston, FL (July 26, 2010) – Weston-based national gold buyer, GoldFellow® and aztig urban salon announced they will co-host a gold fund-raiser, “Gold for the Gulf” to raise money and awareness for Gulf Aid (www.gulfaid.org) a 501(c)3 not-for-profit whose stated mission is to provide relief to the Gulf Coast fishing community, their families and address the long-term restoration and protection of America’s coastal wetlands.
The event which is open to the public will be held at aztig urban salon, 1641 Bonaventure Boulevard in Weston on Thursday, September 2, 2010 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. GoldFellow® will purchase gold jewelry from participants and together with the salon, pledges to donate 10% of all gold purchased at the event to Gulf Aid.
“Our goal is to raise $2,500 in three hours,” said Cynthia Nigro, director of national events for GoldFellow®. “Everyone has some old gold jewelry lying around they don’t wear like a broken chain or orphaned earring,” said Nigro. “Selling that gold to GoldFellow® at this event will benefit the seller – and Gulf Aid. The more gold we buy at this event…the more money we’ll raise.”
According to Nigro, individuals selling gold are welcome to designate part – or even all – of their gold proceeds to Gulf Aid to further support this effort.
Throughout the evening, aztig urban salon will offer complimentary hair styling, airbrush makeup and spray tanning demonstrations with a suggested minimum $5 donation to Gulf Aid per service. The salon also serves as a South Florida collection point for clean human or pet hair clippings which are donated to an organization which manufactures and distributes oil-absorbing mats and oil booms.
A silent auction will run through the evening and several local vendors will offer items such as purses, candles and jewelry for sale with 10% of their sales also benefiting Gulf Aid.
