5th Ave Hair Studio hosts event to celebrate women, benefit CHiPS
5th Ave Hair Studio hosted friends, family and most of all, women on Thursday, November 16 at special event dubbed “Women for Women.”
The event – which featured networking, hors d’oeuvres and even a wine raffle – served as a fundraiser for CHiPS, a facility in Park Slope that doubles as a soup kitchen and a shelter for women in need.
Since 1971, CHiPS – headed today by Denise Scaravella – has been supported by a community of Brooklyn neighbors, volunteers and friends who share a common vision to help those who are less fortunate. On premises, they prepare hot, nutritious meals and serve them to the hungry while also housing up to seven women in their last trimester of pregnancies (and their newborns for up to a year) as well as two older women in need.
“This is a beautiful event,” said Scaravella, calling 5th Ave Hair Studio owner and founder Nina Grullon a friend to all of her clients. Particularly special, Scaravella told this paper, is her friendship with Grullon, which she said is all thanks to Star Network.
