Style Meets Compassion at the Annual GLAD Fundraising Event


Celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves is hosting the 10th Annual GLAD fundraising event which will benefit the Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness, Inc. The event will take place at The House of Blues in West Hollywood, Sept. 30 from 6-10 p.m.

The theme of the red-carpet event is the GLAD domino effect – sustaining a chain reaction toward equal access for the deaf and hard of hearing.

The title sponsor of the event is the ABC Family. Host Paves will be joined by star of ABC Family's "Switched at Birth” Sean Berdy who will be a part of the event as the master of ceremonies. Deaf by birth, Berdy is a well-known actor, entertainer, comedian and live performer. He rose to fame since his role in the "The Sandlot 2" in 2005.

Paves, an award-winning hairstylist, has styled many A-List celebrities. Fluent in the American Sign Language, he has been a long-time supporter of the deaf and hard of hearing.

“I'm a proud supporter of GLAD, which represents a worthy cause that's very close to my heart,” Paves said. “GLAD fights for equality in the arts, and is committed to helping talented deaf and hard of hearing artists gain the recognition they deserve. The Annual GLAD Benefit at the House of Blues gives the public an opportunity to be part of something amazing and huge. Together, we can make sure everyone gets a chance to express themselves.”

Every year, the Annual GLAD fundraising event is attended by a number of celebs. This year, actresses Eva Longoria and Amber Zion, rapper Sean Forbes, contemporary/classical dancer Antoine Hunter, dancer-aerialist Jacob “Krazy Kujo” and rock singer Camryn have confirmed their attendance.

Attendees will be treated to live entertainment, appetizers, dessert, dancing, music, a cash bar, and meet-and-greets with special guests. Professional photographer Tate Tullier will snap attendees as they walk the red carpet and party photographers will take candid pictures.

Limited tickets, priced at $100, are available for the 10th Annual GLAD fundraising event and can be bought online . The event prescribes a strict dress code of smart cocktail attire in black, teal, white or polka dots.
