World renowned beauty expert Patric Antonio Bradley has been acknowledged as a beauty industry icon for nearly a decade. His amazing talent enables him to be innovative and imaginative when creating trendsetting hairstyles and "show stopping" makeovers. Capturing the attention of leading haircare companies, his bold styles have been featured by BIA, Salon Choice, Dudley Products and Farouk Systems – just to name a few. His work has also been displayed on more than 75 national and international magazine covers and billboards around the globe.
“We really appreciate Patric’s participation in this event. Having an artist with the talent and huge industry experience that he has, at our school to help us with fundraising, that’s incredible. And to have someone with Patric’s particular set of creative tools, here for this type of event, well that’s just about perfect.” said Paul Mitchell the School Fresno Director Erik Pedersen, “and the Future Professional’s intense passion for what they do, coupled with their joy in fundraising, really tops it all off. No doubt about it, this is a hot ticket! You’ll want to get your tickets right away and invite all your friends and family.”
In 2012, the schools raised a record-breaking $2.5 million, bringing their nine-year total to over $8.5 million. This year, they’ve set their sights on the $2.5 million mark again, to benefit 11 organizations:
- Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, represented by Donny and Marie Osmond
- Morris Animal Foundation, represented by Betty White
- Fran Drescher’s Cancer Schmancer Foundation
- Magic Johnson Foundation, represented by Earvin “Magic” Johnson
- Gary Sinise Foundation, represented by Gary Sinise

- Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation, the schools’ own nonprofit organization
“We are absolutely thrilled that Betty White, Donny and Marie Osmond, Gary Sinise, Magic Johnson, Fran Drescher, and Kathy Buckley have joined us again this year,” said Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh, “and we are so excited to add actress Megyn Price to our ‘FUNraising’ family. Each of these incredible individuals will play an active role in motivating and encouraging our 16,000 future professionals as they participate in thousands of grassroots events, from cut-a-thons and car washes to fashion shows and charity balls. Our partners are members of an elite group of wonderful celebrities who’ve supported us in the past, including Dolly Parton, Larry King, Vidal Sassoon, and Leeza Gibbons.”
Paul Mitchell Schools proudly report that the cost incurred in raising the $8.5 million has been less than 4%, an amazingly low amount compared to the national average of 25%. “At our Paul Mitchell Schools, we are proud of our commitment to raising money and awareness for a variety of causes and organizations,” Winn Claybaugh says. “We do not spend $300,000 to raise $1 million. Last year, our Paul Mitchell future professionals raised $2.5 million, and we gave $2.5 million to our beneficiaries.”
