Brillare Hairdressing Academy, a Phoenix-based independent cosmetology school, will be hosting a “Model for a Day” event on Saturday, April 13, 2013 for children and adults to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Arizona (CCFA).

For a $25 donation to CCFA, participants will receive hairstyling and makeup, model coaching and an on-site headshot photo session with Korpong Studio Photography which includes one complimentary image.

“This event is a fun way to feel like a model and would also benefit anyone who needs a professional photo for their resume or social media profile,” said Christa Jones, Chief Executive Officer for Brillare Hairdressing Academy. “At Brillare Academy, we believe that looking your best instills confidence and supporting a great cause makes you feel even better.”

The Young Agency models Jennifer Miller and André Linnartz will be on hand to provide runway and modeling coaching for participants. Sponsors of the event include The Young Agency, Korpong Photography and Sephora.

Event organizer Jennifer Miller was recently selected as the honored hero for the upcoming CCFA Walk on April 27 in Tempe. For more information about Miller and the CCFA Walk, visit [

“Jennifer is a great role model for any young person who has IBD,” said Megan Livengood, Walk Coordinator for Crohn’s & Colitis Southwest Chapter. “Although she has undergone multiple surgeries and treatments, she has remained positive and active and has continued to pursue her dreams – which include modeling.”
