Jennifer Edgell from Ladies & Gentlemen Salon and Spa presented United Way of Lake County with $3,404 following their charity softball game with John Robert’s Salon and Spa.
The two local salons went to bat for a cause at Classic Park in Eastlake on August 28 with both companies donating their ticket sales to worthwhile charities. Ladies & Gentlemen sold 680 tickets and donated all the proceeds from those sales to United Way of Lake County.
“This is the first time we have played the game for charity,” said Samantha Matheson, marketing team lead for Ladies & Gentlemen. “We try to do a lot with United Way of Lake County, so we thought we’d get together with John Robert’s - who also does a lot of work with charities - and thought it’d be a fun thing to do for a good cause.”
The Lake County Captains donated Classic Park for the game and a percentage of the concessions during this fun event.
