Zucci Earth Month Fundraiser
The Zucci cut-a-thon, raising money for National Youth Mental Health Foundation headspace was a huge success!
Zucci hairdressing is thrilled to announce that the total money raised for their elected AVEDA Earth Month charity headspace is $6,000. Zucci held a cut-a-thon event in early April at both the South Melbourne and Ivanhoe locations, with all haircuts sold at a flat rate of $50, with 100% of the money raised put towards their elected charity. During the month of April each salon location also had a raffle filled with beautiful AVEDA products that guests could buy tickets for, further allowing the whole Zucci community to band together and put their support behind the worthy charity.
Founder and Director of Zucci, Rocco Petrucci is very humbled by the whole experience;
“I am so proud of the time and effort that each of my staff members put in to ensuring that the optimum amount of money was raised throughout the fundraiser event. Most people would not volunteer to work on their day off; it was such a humbling experience for me to see my staff so eager to put their hand up and get involved”.
Shakira Petrucci, Executive Colourist and Educator at Zucci is also thrilled with the result;
“The Zucci cut-a-thon was such a fun day and it was great to see all our staff volunteer their time for free to raise money for a worthy cause. We are also very fortunate and thankful to have so many of our guests generously donate money to our raffle throughout the fundraiser event, furthering the total amount of money that was raised”.
Rocco Petrucci also believes that headspace is a charity that is very closely aligned with Zucci due to the vast number of young people that the business hires every year;
“Young people are under so much pressure today from factors such as work or study, relationships, fitting in, the list goes on.”
“We at Zucci have created a culture of nurturing and building confidence in individuals so that our team have the tools to help them deal with these issues, a culture which directly aligns with the values of headspace.”
Bob Mc Kevitt, Corporate Partners and Fundraising Advisor at headspace is very pleased with the outcome;
“headspace is delighted to benefit from the recent Zucci cut-a-thon. In addition to raising $6,000 to support our work, Zucci staff members have helped raise awareness of headspace among their customers and the wider community.”
