Artistic Academy of Morris Plains, New Jersey was recognized for its fundraising efforts by the American Cancer Society. As a Flagship Sponsor for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides against Breast Cancer, the progressive cosmetology and skin care school made a big impact.
Not only did the school raise the initial $5,000.00 giving Artistic Academy the honor of becoming a flagship sponsor, in the 7 weeks preceding the October 18th event, Artistic Academy raised an additional $27,017.28. This tremendous effort put Artistic Academy in second place amongst other Flagship Sponsors such as Wyndham Worldwide, Realogy and first place Flagship Sponsor Morristown Memorial Hospital, a Flagship Sponsor for the last 13 years.
Additionally, Artistic Academy was recognized for raising the most as a first year Flagship Sponsor in the history of the event.
While Artistic Academy can be considered a small in comparison to other Flagship Sponsors, the students and staff have great expectations and high goals; they are no strangers to meeting these standards and achieving so much more. As one of the DePasquale Companies, Artistic Academy takes pride in being a part of the Circle of Beauty, as students develop in all aspects of the industry they come to realize they have the ability to do more and give back to those in need.
Artistic Academy has raised monies for a number of charities including the Hope House of Dover, St Peter’s Orphanage in Denville, The American Red Cross, The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, only to name a few.
Currently, Artistic Academy is working hard to produce a third beauty show for The City of Hope (a cancer and diabetes treatment and research center). The previous two shows produced by Artistic Academy raised over $100,000.00 combined. The show, scheduled for Friday June 18, 2010, promises to be an exciting showcase of the skills of some very talented young professionals for a great cause.
