Millennium to Host Be-Cause Event in March

Millennium Salon Software will host its first Be-Cause charity event on March 5, 2011. Be-Cause is a movement to unite those in the beauty industry that are doing more to be recognized in some way. “When we started this initiative we had no idea how far it would take off,” says Robert Maconi, vice president of Business Solutions for Millennium Software. “Our intent was to give back to the beauty industry in the form of inspiration. In return we were inspired by hundreds of beauty professionals that are making waves in their communities.” The event will take place at Philip Pelusi's Tela Design Studio in the meatpacking district in New York City and will include cocktails, a presentation from Philip Pelusi, a word from Be-Cause founder John Harms and gift bags. All proceeds will go to Beauty Changes Lives (BCL), an organization focused on raising funds for scholarship programs to benefit new students entering the beauty industry and provide advanced education programs for licensed beauty professionals. Millennium hopes to raise enough money to offer an aspiring beauty professional a full scholarship to beauty school. For more information, visit
