MARIETTA, Ga. -- For 39 years, Three 13 Salon, Spa & Boutique has been building its reputation as the standard of quality and excellence in the beauty industry.

In September, the salon hosted its second annual Angels of Life Hair & Fashion Show to benefit the Georgia Transplant Foundation. Local radio and TV personality, and kidney transplant recipient, Melissa Carter served as emcee during the event that showcased inspiring survivor stories and the artistic talent from the team at Three-13 Salon, Spa & Boutique.

The Georgia Transplant Foundation assists families with monthly bills, transportation and monthly medications during the transplant process. Proceeds from event ticket sales and silent auction efforts benefited the organization, and a check for $33,313.13 was presented to the foundation on Thursday, November 8, 2012, at Emory University Hospital at 1:30 pm.

A two-time heart transplant recipient, managing partner Lester Crowell was inspired by his own experiences and launched the salon-sponsored Angels of Life Hair & Fashion Show in 2011. The event raised $31,313.13 in its first year and quickly earned a top spot in the beauty and philanthropic worlds. The third annual event is scheduled for October 13, 2013, and aims to continue the salon’s commitment to being a place where caring and community come together.
