During the first year of its partnership with the breast cancer charity, Sally Beauty Holdings raised over $1.3 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. From April 2011 through March 2012, Sally Beauty Holdings and its operating units Sally Beauty Supply and CosmoProf raised funds for Komen through a 5% donation of the sales price of designated products, as well as by collecting donations at the register in its stores. All Sally Beauty Holdings’ U.S.-based operating units and many of its suppliers and manufacturers participated in the fundraising program.
“We are thrilled to partner with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s leading breast cancer organization,” says Gary Winterhalter, president and CEO of Sally Beauty Holdings. Komen founder and CEO Nancy G. Brinker’s commitment to the promise she made her sister, Susan G. Komen, to rid the world of breast cancer is what convinced our company and our professional beauty industry partners to join the cause,”
Winterhalter adds: “Sally Beauty and CosmoProf would like to extend a special thank you to our supplier and manufacturer partners, whose generosity helped us achieve this outstanding contribution. Their commitment to this cause is commendable, as the majority of our customer base is women.”
The second year of Sally Beauty Holdings fundraising program for Susan G. Komen will run through March 31, 2013.
