Tricoci University of Beauty Culture (TUBC) is making prom dreams come true as it supports the Edward Touhy Gurdian Angel Foundation’s annual SENIOR PROMise, an inspiring initiative that enables economically disadvantaged high school students to look fabulous at their at their senior proms. The selected seniors, who must be in good academic standing, will receive the gift of glamorous prom hair and makeup compliments of cosmetology students and leaders from TUBC’s Bridgeview and Chicago campuses. “It’s a no-brainer for us to support this wonderful initiative,” said Brian Weed, CEO of Tricoci University of Beauty Culture. “We truly understand the importance of education and enabling young people to have a brighter future, so we’re honored to be involved in this opportunity to help make a difference. Our cosmetology and esthetics students find it very rewarding getting involved in special charity initiatives, working to change lives by using their beauty skills.”
Numerous Chicago-based organizations such as the Latin School of Chicago, Francis Parker High School and Old St. Pat's Church are offering generous donations to make the prom dreams of high school students come true. The Edward Touhy Foundation collects items such as formal dresses, handbags and shoes for the teens to wear. Other supporters include the Service Club of Chicago, Smith Senior Living Community Employees and the Geldner Center.
SENIOR PROMise includes pupils from the Queen of Peace High School, who will visit a TUBC campus on April 25th, Marist High School (May 9th) and North Lawndale College Prep High School (May 16th).
