Chic Palooza is an annual event, hosted by Shelly Konz & Mia Isaacson of Cousino Restoration, to pamper Cousino Restoration’s female clients and an opportunity to introduce a new charity, of which the guests have the option whether or not to donate.
“Years ago we were talking how men can golf, get their hair cut, pick up their dry-cleaning, but women (in the same positions) don’t get the same flexibilities. We decided to create an event where women get pampered, and it has evolved from there,” said Shelly Konz, marketing for Cousino Restoration.
Over the years, the event has grown to around 100 women, including insurance agents, adjustors and wives of clients. This year’s evening event allowed attendees to indulge in chair massages, manicures, facials, shopping and various exercise and craft classes, while enjoying DJ entertainment.
In addition, the event collected approximately $500 for this year’s charity of choice, The Daughter Project, located in Toledo, OH, which helps raise awareness about sex trafficking and offers services to support those victims.
In the last three years, they have helped 11 young girls between the ages of 13 and 17. The money raised at Chic Palooza will help The Daughter Project purchase clothes and necessary lifestyle items for the two girls currently in their home.
