From the very start of Beauteque, our founder Elina made a promise to herself and to the community at large: every year, the company would donate a portion of our revenue to a charity. We’re thrilled to say this promise has become a reality in our very first year. Beauteque is holding our first ever charity beauty event, Shine a Light in the Dark: a Night of Female Empowerment, on Friday, August 22nd, and every single one of our beautiful followers is invited!
Taking place at the Middletown Arts Center in Middletown, NJ, our event will raise awareness about a serious issue in the local community: domestic and sexual violence. As we educate our guests about the causes and effects and refer them to preventative and protective resources, we will also remind each and every one that they deserve to feel beautiful. After our guest speakers share their stories, our very own staff of professionals will offer complimentary skin care and makeup sessions. Guests will also have easy access to purchase DIY sample bags and/or our latest and best beauty products. 10% of all event proceeds will be donated to 180NJ, a nonprofit organization and shelter dedicated to ending domestic and sexual violence.
We will also be holding a donation drive for the victims who seek refuge in 180NJ, so please donate old cell phones, gift cards, and/or unused clothing. Just a few items can make a world of difference to those who need them.
The event will be chock-full of learning experiences, beauty products, and of course, complimentary food for all our lovely guests. Tickets are $10 online and $15 at the door. Purchase one now and comment below with any questions, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can’t make the event, refer your friends and keep an eye on the blog and on our social media for the post-event scoop! If you can make it, please aim to arrive 10-15 minutes early to make the admission process easier. We can’t wait to see all your beautiful faces there!
