The weekend kicks off on Friday evening with a recipient VIP Pre-Party at CWHL headquarters where attendees enjoy dinner, mingling with other recipient families, having your wigs professionally styled and nails painted in preparation for the Charity Ball the next night!


Our wonderful & talented friends Lynne & Tiffany from Occhi Lash & Brow Studio from Chicago will host an amazing FREE class to teach recipients great techniques on how to easily & naturally add & enhance their eyebrows & eyelashes!



You'll recognize this CWHL supporter from her hair replacement videos on our website! Diana Ford of Hair Solutions by Diana Ford will teach a class about how to care for hair replacements & offer other fun tips!



We begin preparation for the Charity Ball mid-afternoon! Recipients will arrive
and use the special "model room" at Laurel Manor to have their makeup professionally applied by makeup artists, their hair replacements touched up, and practice their runway walk!

The model fashions, on loan courtesy of Traffic Jam and Sofi Stella boutiques, will be in that room on racks. The recipients get dressed just before the runway show. We even have drapery for recipients to change from their Charity Ball attire into and out of their runway fashions for the show!

The Charity Ball on Saturday night is a large, fancy event with the fashion show, dinner, dancing, silent auctions and raffles. Recipients and their families, special guests, many supporters, donors and volunteers all attend to celebrate and continue our mission,


Also enjoy a Meet & Mingle Hour at 5pm, a Kids' Food Station, a specialty Pink Ponytail "Mocktail" for kids, and most importantly, the opportunity to develop friendships with other recipients that often continue long after the weekend ends!


CWHL has reserved a block of hotel rooms at a discounted rate for recipients & their families for Friday, November 4th & Saturday, November 5th. Just mention CWHL when reserving your room or CLICK HERE




You'll love the energy and enthusiasm of Lindsay Barto & Chris Healy! They're co-founders of The Longhairs, a California based company that celebrates men's long manes and makes hair products for men. The Longhairs donate 1% of every sale to Children With Hair Loss!

On March 16, 2019, in San Diego, The Longhairs hosted The Great Cut and broke the Guinness World Record for the most hair donated to charity in a 24 hour period, all for Children With Hair Loss!
