A couple of weeks ago, I told you all about GLAM Academy. GLAM is the acronym for Girls Learning About Makeup. The day camp was developed by my client Contrecia Tharpe, owner of Makeup by Trecie. She created the camp for preteens and teen girls who were interested in learning about makeup application and the proper techniques to use.
The event was held this past Saturday, for more than 30 young girls a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. The girls attended the four-hour camp with their “Big Sisters” and had a great time. Tharpe provided hands-on demonstrations, t-shirts, gift bags and certificates to the young ladies upon completion of the course. She also put together a Powerpoint that the girls were able to take home and reference for future use.
This event was so much of a success, that all parties involved have requested that she offer another, extensive, camp soon. I was very excited about the turnout. Channel 2 News, WKRN, also came out and did a segment on the event. It can be found on their website. And, I was able to secure gift bag donations from companies such as Carolina Pad, which was a true “hit” with the girls.
All in all, this was a great event for “Back to School” as most of the students had their first day of school yesterday. Look for more events from Makeup by Trecie SOON!
