Raising Hair for Kids
 
On April 27, Memphis is going to experience a uniquely fabulous fundraiser for the kids at the Memphis Child Advocacy Center! Raising Hair is a fashion event being thrown by the salon community and coordinated by local stylist Terry Lesley—and you are invited! 
Leading salons will enter a model into a fashion show competition at Central Station (the location of the Downtown Farmer’s Market). Your $50 ticket buys you a fashionable food truck dinner and the privilege of voting on the winner of “The Biggest Hair Raiser of 2014." You’ll also enjoy Memphis music legends The Bouffants and Loveland Duren...and much more!

Help our community remember our highest priority

You can help us call our community to action. On Wednesday, April 16 at noon, we will gather at Civic Center Plaza (outside of City Hall) to raise the Children’s Memorial Flag for children who have died as a result of abuse or neglect in the past 12 months. We gather to remember the children we’ve lost and to evoke a broader commitment from our community.

Speakers will include Mayor A C Wharton, Mayor Luttrell, District Attorney General Amy Weirich, Rhynette Northcross Hurd, and CAC Executive Director Virginia Stallworth. April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
