Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Get ready to be dazzled by imaginative hairstyle and outrageous fashions as "Tu Centro LGBT" in Vallarta, the SETAC Community Center, brings the amazing runway spectacular "Hair Spray Night" back to SKY Mandala on Friday, October 4, 2013.
The idea behind 'Hair Spray Night' originated from the L'Oreal Paris Corporation's Coiffeurs Fights AIDS initiative supported by UNESCO, which was presented as 'Hairdressers Against AIDS' in the Global Village at the 2008 XVII International AIDS Conference in Mexico City.
From that point on, SETAC's desire to implement the initiative in Vallarta was always present, so they decided to utilize the resources, initiative and creativity of SETAC, along with the commitment and support of the most renowned stylists and socially responsible sponsors in Puerto Vallarta, to make the event a reality.
And that's just what happened on September 29th, 2012, when around 400 people gathered at Sky Mandala to be awed by the creative coiffes presented by 15 local salons at the first annual Hair Spray Night, while raising just over $58,000 pesos for the SETAC Center's fight against AIDS.
"It was a dream come true," said SETAC Director, Paco Arjona. "It is something I really wanted to do and the response from the people of Vallarta was really great."
Scheduled to return to Sky Mandala (on the Malecón in downtown Puerto Vallarta) from 8-11 pm on Friday, October 4th, this year's event promises to be another fabulous night filled with fantasy, magic and glamour featuring a runway, fanciful hair creations, raffles and lots of surprises.
The fight against AIDS needs many voices, which is why we invite everyone to be a part of a great event in recognition and appreciation of the Puerto Vallarta stylists who have agreed to be the spokes persons of SETAC's 'Hairdressers Against AIDS Vallarta' campaign.
Don't miss this amazing runway spectacular to benefit SETAC and their fight against HIV and AIDS in Puerto Vallarta. A donation of $150 pesos buys you a ticket, which are available at the SETAC Community Center on PV's south side. And, if you arrive before 8:30 pm, you'll also enjoy a complimentary cocktail!Editor's Note: Those interested in participating or sponsoring the event should contact Paco Arjona at (322) 224-1974 or paco(at)setac.com.mx before August 31, 2013.
