The Ki Release is an annual fundraiser where a runway hair show is produced by a non-profit organization, The Edwards Foundation located in Birmingham, Alabama. The hosts personally understand how hair loss can negatively impact both men and women! So many people in the community suffer in silence and are looked over because others fail to understand the importance of appearance, even when you are not feeling your best.
The Ki Release caters to both men and women suffering hair loss due to chemotherapy, alopecia or terminal illness and families in living shelters. Their goal is to change lives through makeovers, laughter, fun, music and more. Every other year The Ki Release creates a runway that will serve as a platform for inspired barbers, stylists and makeup artists utilizing their God-given gifts to create wigs, male units and makeup artistry in their own unique ways. A stage of collaborating gifts comes together as one to change lives!
An added bonus to this event celebration is selecting the audience winners to be transformed through their own makeovers and presented on the runway. Other giveaways are also guaranteed to be handed out to an expected SOLD OUT crowd of supporters, family and friends of this awesome day!
Most of our event proceeds are being donated to breast, alopecia and living shelters participants allowing them to keep clothing, custom hair pieces and hire the best team to assist in making this a day they will not forget. Your donations and support will help us to reach even more people in the community than you can imagine. This event has helped so many triumph over negative doctor’s reports, insecurities, and depression. Some of our nominees’ final memories involved a beautiful makeover and an always-remembered smile!
For this, we sincerely thank you for your continued support!
