An Afternoon of Beauty Continues to Benefit the Community

Academy Cosmetology Students Donate Time and Skill


The 11th Annual Afternoon of Beauty fundraising event was held on Wednesday, December 12 simultaneously in the Cosmetology Departments at both Edward J. Milliken Technical Center in Oakdale and Harry B. Ward Technical Center in Riverhead.

This event was open to the public and offered salon services for a donation of $5 along with a nonperishable food item. Available services included haircuts, thermal styling, blowouts, manicures, and paraffin treatments.

St. John’s Nepomucene in Bohemia, the Long Island Council of Churches and New Beginnings Brendan House in Riverhead benefitted from this event, which raised $750, in addition to the food that was collected.

Cosmetology students proudly donated their time by utilizing the skills they are working hard to perfect in class on real customers, friends and family members.

Both technical centers are part of the Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology, which is the career and technical education program of Eastern Suffolk BOCES.
