Lindsay Welsh, co-owner of The Parlour, A Davines Concept Salon in Timonium, MD, will be bringing her salon to you! Her entire staff will be at McDonogh School next Wednesday and Thursday to provide free professional haircuts to all attendees with 100% of donations going toward the Shootout for Soldiers’ charity beneficiaries.
Growing up with an older brother, former USMC Major Thomas H. Welsh Jr., gave Lindsay a first hand look of what life is like for military members and their families. Deployed on several occasions with Marines Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC), Lindsay experienced several years away from her own brother while he was serving his country.
Now Lindsay, her family, and business are going all in this year to support Shootout for Soldiers Baltimore in a unique way.
“The common goal we all have at The Parlour, A Davines Concept Salon is to be a day maker,” Welsh said.
“Because of my brother TJ, this cause sits close to home for me.” -Lindsay Welsh
So what exactly can you expect from The Parlour’s setup at McDonogh School next Wednesday and Thursday?
“We will be setting up shop along the fields with our team of staff and volunteers cutting hair and painting faces for donations,” she said. “We will also have some awesome silent auction items as well!”
Lindsay and The Parlour’s involvement in this year’s Shootout for Soldiers Baltimore sparked months ago. When she heard exactly who the money raised by the Shootout for Soldiers was going to help, it made her decision to jump on the team an easy one.
“These men and women can never fully be repaid for all they have done for our country, but every stride to make a difference in their lives post war is worth every ounce of effort,” Welsh said. “When I was listening to all of the details about this amazing event, my wheels started turning because I wanted to help!”
