Shriners Hospital for Children® – Twin Cities hosted a very special prom for their young patients, and Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) students were privileged to volunteer as the hairstylists and makeup artists. Thirty-seven young people had their hair and makeup done by our students at this remarkable event, held at the Minnesota Masonic Home in Bloomington, Minn.
Shriners Hospital for Children® – Twin Citiesis focuses on treating children with orthopaedic and neuromusculoskeletal conditions in a kid-friendly environment designed to help make them feel comfortable. Every member of the Shriners staff is focused on providing the highest quality care for the child and the family.
Lauren Herro, Shriners Hospital Director of Public and Community Relations exclaimed, “The event went GREAT! The students were all very professional and efficient and I cannot say enough amazing things about what they do for these kids! The kids feel SO special after you’ve given them the royal treatment.”
MSC student, Bobbie Bednar, was touched by her involvement with the Shriners prom. “This has been one of my most memorable experiences. Seeing so many kids in their pretty gowns, plus having the ability to increase their confidence and make them feel glamorous is truly a blessing that I will always remember!”
Students and staff at the Minnesota School of Cosmetology look forward to enhancing the prom experience for special young people at this annual event.
