Vidal Sassoon Alumni Gathering 2014
Friends, this is not charity, this is us (hairdressers) giving a helping hand in times of need to our fellow hairdressers. If you cannot afford to give, we still love you :-)
I will be donating a copy of the VIDAL SASSOON AUTOBIOGRAPHY book to the highest bidder, This book has been personally autographed by Vidal before he passed away.
All donations are welcome.
Please read the attached invite for details. You and your guests are personally invited.
Please reply to the link below if you will make it so we can get a rough head count.

See you there...
It's that time of year where we all get sentimental and remember our friends and families.
Again, thanks for all your support in helping to raise money for Robert Edele's family.
As promised, I am putting together an informal VIDAL SASSOON RE-UNION on SATURDAY JANUARY 25th 2014 from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the HYATT REGENCY HOTEL in LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA located at: 200 S. Pine Ave, Long Beach, California 90802, USA.
This gathering will happen at the end of the first day of the International Salon & Spa Expo (ISSE Long beach) Hair Show in the atrium area of the hotel, opposite the restaurant. (signs will be up there). This is a "No Host Cash Bar".
Come join us, meet and chat with some of the Sassoon originals and the alumni that helped make our craft so amazing.
Mingle with the stars of our industry and the press.
Bring your friends, all are welcome, as this is a FREE event.
RSVP please to: Tony@TonyBeckerman.com or reply to this notice
I want to thank you all so very much for all of your most generous donations to Robert Edele's memorial fund. Collectively, you have made a difference in his family's life.
Our largest contributor was Fernando Romero, who I will contact and present the Vidal Sassoon autobiography book which was personally autographed by Vidal before he passed away.
I will be planning a reunion for many of the original "Sassooners" from the 1960's onwards. The venue has not yet been conformed, but it will be in the Los Angeles/Long Beach area sometime during the ISSE hair show at the end of January 2014.
YOU ARE ALL INVITED
Again, thank you so very much. My future plan is to try to create a foundation that our beauty companies can contribute to and we can use that money to help our industry friends who need a "helping hand".
As Vidal would always say, "this is not charity, this is a "bridge of help from friends""
You are all so awesome....thank you...thank you...thank you ...Oh, did I forget to say Thank You? :-)
I am off on vacation tonight to visit my family in Melbourne, Australia, once I return I will follow up with you all on all the details of our potential "Get Together"...
You've made my day, you've made me smile and most importantly, you've help to take some sadness away from Robert's family and have given them a new ray of hope and sunshine as we celebrate the life of Robert Edele.
I'm sure that Robert and Vidal are up there creating a few special haircut inspirations for us all to enjoy....:-)
I'll be in touch....
