The two-day educational event included motivational speeches, workshops and stage shows. John Paul Mitchell Systems (JPMS) co-owners John Paul DeJoria and Angus Mitchell, Global Artistic Director Robert Cromeans, and Paul Mitchell Schools dean and co-founder Winn Claybaugh hosted the event, which included appearances by Tabatha Coffey and Robert Lobetta. Additionally, Magic Johnson and Marie Osmond also spoke during the event to thank the students for including both the Magic Johnson Foundation and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (co-founded by the Osmond family) in the annual FUNraising campaign. Each year for a period of three months, students from Paul Mitchell Schools across the country team up to raise funds for charitable organizations via grassroots, dollar-for-dollar events like cut-a-thons, fashion shows, bake sales and more. To date the students have raised over $6 million. In support of the campaign, 20 industry leaders—including Ted Gibson, Vivienne Mackinder and Dean Banowetz—have each volunteered to donate a day of education to the top 20 schools participating this year. “I’m grateful to these amazing superstars who have no problem crossing over to support our Paul Mitchell Future Professionals in raising a ton of money for some very worthy causes,” Claybaugh said. A gala will be held on May 7 to reveal the results of this year’s FUNraising campaign. —M.R.
