COLOR Salon Owner Michael Boychuck Kicks Off Charity Season with Beauty Gifts That Give Back
Proceeds to Benefit Keep Memory Alive in Support of Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health


Michael Boychuck, Las Vegas’ first and only Intercoiffure recognized salon owner and celebrity colorist, has committed to raise funds for Keep Memory Alive in support of Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health this holiday season through the sale of his new makeup brush collections. Perfect stocking stuffers for the beauty guru in your life, these beauty gifts will give back to benefit the patients, caregivers and families who may be in need of a little extra holiday cheer.

Kicking off on Giving Tuesday through Feb. 14, 2017, Boychuck will donate 15 percent of his makeup brush website sales to Keep Memory Alive in the pursuit of more effective treatments for brain disease and in providing state-of-the-art care for patients and their families.

Additionally, Boychuck will gift 10 travel sets for every 50 units sold to be distributed among the center’s committed caregivers and their patients, along with makeovers at COLOR Salon in Caesars Palace to boost their spirits and have them looking and feeling their best this holiday season.

“There is truly an outstanding sense of community in this town and Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health keeps those otherwise unattainable resources close to home,” said Boychuck. “If I can bring just a hint of beauty into the lives of those families and individuals who may be dealing with the challenges and effects of brain disorders, I’ll be honored. It means a lot to me to be able to give back to the Las Vegas community.

The vegan, hypoallergenic soft-definition synthetic brush sets can be purchased at boychuckhair.com and come in 5-piece ($85) and 24-piece ($395) sets.
