Be IN with the Be-Cause – IN NYC that is. If you were one of the lucky ones to attend Millennium’s first ever Be-Cause kick off charity event then you already know that it was a huge success. About two hundred and forty five invited beauty professionals came together at the beautiful Tela Design Studio in New York City to support the Be-Cause and celebrate being more. Guests were able to rub elbows with some of the industries biggest names including Ted Gibson, Gayle Giacomo, Brig Van Osten, Angie Katsanevas, George Ortiz, Donald Francis, Philip Pelusi, Carmen Depasquale, Justin Depasquale, Marco Pelusi, Matt Beck, April Barton, Brian Buterbaugh, TJ Romeland, David Evangelista, Amy Michleb, John Harms and more.
Red carpet interviews, model presentations, and flashes from photographers, resembled a scene from the Oscars or Emmy’s. The mood was light and fun as people everywhere spoke to their “Be” word. “My word is be authentic,” says President and CEO of Millennium Salon Software & Founder of the Be-Cause. “I try to be a real leader and person that people can trust.”
In efforts to raise money for Beauty Changes Lives it is no doubt that Millennium Salon Software, founders of the Be-Cause, did as much as possible to make this an unforgettable night. Their hard work paid off; the event helped raise thousands of dollars towards sending students to beauty school. John Harms is passionate about making an impact on the industry, “The future of our industry lies in our students and I am grateful to be able to help make a difference.”
