This Sunday July 27, 2014, VLVT Salon is hosting a fundraiser event to support Dahlia, a 3-year-old St. Pete girl who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in May of 2013.
Dahlia and her mother, Moriah Barnhart, lived in the Tampa Bay area when Dahlia was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor at the age of two. They began their journey for Dahlia’s life shortly after her diagnosis at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. and have traveled around the country searching for a cure.
After more than a year of traveling, they have returned to the St. Petersburg area to be with friends and family as Dahlia continues treatment.
When Albie Mulcahy, owner of VLVT Salon, heard about Dahlia’s story through a client, he knew he wanted to help. Mulcahy, with the help of other local St. Pete businesses, decided to put together a fundraiser to raise money to give Dahlia and her family a home in St. Petersburg, as they are currently staying with friends.
As a celebrity, world-renowned hairstylist, Mulcahy and his business partner Maurice Tidy decided to make the fundraiser a cut-a-thon with 100% of the proceeds going to Dahlia and her family. The VLVT team is requesting that a $25 or $50 donation be made for each cut and style.
The event will also include a raffle with prizes donated by many St. Pete businesses including Aveda Salon, Offshore Seafood Co, America’s Best Inn, Love Kevin Murphy and more. Raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each.
The fundraiser Dahlia’s new home will take place Sunday, July 27 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at VLVT Salon, located at 538 Central Avenue.
