Event Description

In the summer of 2013, Atomic Salon Uptown and Atomic Salon Downtown are planning to host the first annual fundraising project known as ‘The Atomic Project’ in an effort to raise funds for the nonprofit organization The Frankie Lemmon School and Foundation. The Project was born when the owners, Joey Humphrey and Shannon Lamm, decided they wanted to create a night that’s solely about giving back to the community that supports us so much.

The Frankie Lemmon School and Developmental Center is an organization founded here in Raleigh, and is completely locally funded through donations and fundraising efforts. It is a school that provides life changing education that develops into successful social participation for children with mental and physical disabilities. The Frankie Lemmon Foundation offers tuition-free instruction to children ages 3 to 6 years old with developmental delays to include Autism and Downs Syndrome.
This foundation is very close to our hearts at Atomic Salon, and therefore, we have planned an evening dedicated to helping this wonderful establishment give the students the tools necessary for a successful start into a lifetime of education. Zinda: New Asian, an Asian fusion restaurant, will host the affair on August 4th and we plan to include a runway show which showcases the talents and skills of our stylists and artistic team. A silent auction will be set up with donated items in which all proceeds will be bestowed directly to the Frankie Lemmon Foundation. A contribution fee of $10 from each attendee will be collected at the door to be given to the foundation. With that goal in mind, we are trying to contact and involve as many local businesses as possible in hopes of creating a wonderful evening for our sponsors while raising as much money as we can for such a worthy cause. Atomic Salon Uptown and Atomic Salon Downtown invites you and your company to participate in this event as a sponsor or contributor.
