Capillus was honored to be a diamond sponsor of the The 6th Annual Night of Wigs and Wishes that took place on November 4th at Lucien’s Manor in New Jersey. Each year this event is organized by award-winning hairstylist, Martino Cartier, along with Friends Are By Your Side to provide courageous women battling cancer with a wig at no cost, as well as granting wishes to children battling cancer.
Famous actress and award-winning singer, Lainie Kazan, hosted and performed at the Wigs and Wishes event this year. As a proud Capillus user himself, Martino Cartier welcomed the Capillus team. Capillus Chief Executive Officer, Carlos Piña, Chief Operations Officer, Maria Pina, and Larry Craft, National Health and Beauty Educator for Capillus, represented the company.
At Wigs and Wishes, salons and stylists throughout the world empower women by providing them with complimentary services. The mission is to allow women with cancer the opportunity to forget about their fight, if only for a brief moment. Wishes are also granted to children with cancer to brighten their day and bring a smile to their face while fighting life's toughest battle.
“We’re proud to team up with Wigs and Wishes to provide support to those who are affected by cancer,” stated Carlos Piña. “I would also like to thank and congratulate Martino Cartier on another successful event dedicated to this noble cause.”
In addition to being a proud sponsor, Capillus contributed 50% of all product sales at the event to the Wigs and Wishes Foundation. Funding was successfully raised from sales of the Capillus82™, Capillus202™ and CapillusPro™ low-level laser therapy (LLLT) devices. Additionally, sales were generated from CAP+ clinical hair therapy products as well as Capillus hair fibers.
