Luxe Salon and Spa, along with its staff and vendors was proud to support the “Hope for Life Celebrity Auction and Fashion Show” on November 26, 2012 at the Ritz Carlton in Phoenix. Hosted by Arizona Cardinal’s linebacker, Sam Acho along with his family, the event raised about $70,000 to build a hospital in Nigeria that provides free medical care for local citizens. Luxe was honored by the generosity of its vendors, such as Éminence Organics, which donated 150 beautiful Jute Bags filled with Vanilla Cream Antioxidant Mineral Foundation and Cinnamon Kiss Lip Plumper as gifts for all the attendees. Luxe’s vendors were major contributors to the silent auction portion of Acho’s event. Goldwell donated a basket of Dual Senses Green that Luxe paired with deluxe consultation and haircut gift certificate, MoroccanOil’s beautiful line of products was paired with a deluxe pedicure and the Eminence donation which included Stone Crop Tube, Bamboo Firming Fluid, Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, Lip Trio and Tea Tree & Mint Hand Cleanser was paired with an Eminence Custom Facial. Luxe also Donated a $250 Dermalogica Products Basket. The Luxe staff at the event did hair and makeup for the Arizona United States Pageant representatives dressed in elegant, beautiful GLAM Squad formal attire. As hostesses for the Celebrity Auction of NFL superstars such as Larry Fitzgerald (as seen below with Miss Arizona United States during the auction), Beanie Wells, and Sam Acho himself, the pageant queens had to look their best and with their beauty and the professional talent, it was easy. The event was written up by all major news outlets and covered by ABC’s Destination TV. Read more on azcentral.com.
