Spirit of Life

On Saturday, July 11, City of Hope held its 2015 Spirit of Life Gala at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. City of Hope’s National Professional Salon Industry Group honored Steve Goddard, Founder & CEO of PRAVANA, with its 2015 Spirit of Life Award. The crowd enjoyed a rockin’ evening, with a special musical performance by Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles.

The Sprit of Life Award is City of Hope’s most prestigious philanthropic honor, presented annually to industry leaders who have demonstrated outstanding personal, professional and philanthropic achievements. Past honorees include John Paul Dejoria (JPMS), George Schaeffer (founder of OPI & Aloxxi), Harlan Kirschner (Founder of The Kirschner Group) and other industry icons. Since the National Professional Salon Industry founding in 1981, more than $25 million has been raised to support City of Hope’s mission to cure – and ultimately prevent – cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.

Through this year’s Spirit of Life campaign, $1 million has been raised for City of Hope’s research and treatment programs.
