I’m a big fan of anniversaries and it may have been a little-known fact that my Best of 604 Awards were originally started because I wanted to celebrate my 5th blogaversary with others, in style, while supporting a cause.

Tonight, Toni & Guy, the world-famous hair salon, is having a special bash of its own to celebrate 10 years in Vancouver.

W.A.R. is a hair and fashion show taking place tonight at the Penthouse Nightclub that will also be supporting Beauty Night.

This worthy cause provides, “beauty care and wellness programs to marginalized adults and youth,” and you can read more information in my interview with organizer, Caroline.

I’m not only excited to experience the hair and fashion show but the Penthouse (at 1019 Seymour) is actually a Vancouver landmark — started up by the Phillipone family, which I have written about briefly in my entries about the little green house on Richards Street or Vancouver Burlesques: An Elegant History.

Toni & Guy is located downtown on Alberni at 1088 Alberni Street and also in Kits at 2179 West 4th Ave and you can also follow their updates on Twitter. If you’re able to come out tonight at 7:00pm to the Penthouse, tickets are $30 and proceeds will all go to Beauty Night.
