Ruth Ellis Asks You To 'Primp For Your Partner'

By Shelby Clark

Feeling dull and lifeless in this seemingly unending winter? Pamper yourself while supporting a good cause at "Primp for your Partner."

Azenza Salon of Birmingham will be hosting the event in order to benefit the Ruth Ellis Center.

The Ruth Ellis Center has been metro-Detroit's leading social service agency for LGBTQ youth. Since 1999, the center has helped runaway, homeless and at-risk youth with their residential housing, drop-in centers and mental health services.

The event will include cosmetic pampering such as eyebrow arching, hair blow outs, eyelash tinting and spray tans. For those who wish to learn how to primp at home, Azenza will also offer makeup and hair consultations as well as providing product samples.

Complimentary champagne and treats will be on site. A 50/50 raffle and silent auction will also occur during the evening.

Primp for your Partner will run 7-10 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 12 at Azenza Salon, 130 W. 14 Mile Road, Birmingham. Tickets for the event are $15. For more information, e-mail or call 248-321-3635.

The Ruth Ellis Center is located at 77 Victor St., Highland Park. To learn more about the nonprofit, visit
