Last year, Paul Halvatzis, a local Queens businessman, accepted a challenge from his children to shave the moustache he had for 35 years off for charity, and he did. With your help, Paul raised $25,000 to benefit Quality Services for the Autism Community (QSAC).
This year, Paul will be joined by his son, Paulie, who has benefited from QSAC’s services for 17 years. In addition, Paul's longtime friend, Gary Bonelli, will be participating. All three will shave their ‘staches for cash, with a goal of raising $35,000! Your donation will help to continue providing essential services for Paulie and thousands of others.
QSAC is committed to providing high-quality, person-centered services for children and adults with autism and their families, and we want to see these services continue. This is why Paul and Paulie are asking for your support: will you help Paul, Paulie, and Gary reach their goal?
Please join us at the Redken Saloon Salon located at 36-17 30th Avenue Astoria, NY 11101, on Friday, December 28, 2012 at 7pm to celebrate with an evening of wine, cheese and ‘stache shaving! For more information about this event or to donate by phone, please contact Marissa Madonia at 718-7-AUTISM, ext. 2035 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
