HAUGHTY COSMETICS LAUNCHES IN DC: Launch Event will Benefit Becky’s Fund | Business
WASHINGTON DC----- Haughty Cosmetics, a new luxury makeup line founded by Michelle Coyle, will launch in DC with an event benefiting Becky’s Fund, a non profit organization focused on domestic violence awareness and education, on March 10. Haughty’s mission is to empower women to feel beautiful inside and out while raising money and awareness for domestic violence prevention.
Coyle, 29, founded Haughty after realizing that she could make a difference for countless women by combining her love of cosmetics with her passion to end relationship violence. The resulting product line pledges 50 percent of its profits to domestic violence prevention education. “I am so proud to be launching a company founded on one of my core beliefs: that true beauty comes from empowering others”, Coyle said.
Coyle is proud to partner with Becky’s Fund because they share a common life goal: preventing as many young women as possible from entering into violent and unhealthy relationships.
“Make-up has been used for eons to make a woman feel beautiful, because when a woman feels beautiful she exudes power and confidence. We are extremely excited and grateful for the opportunity to partner with Haughty Cosmetics, as they step up to use their products to address domestic violence, a serious issue that touches so many,” said Becky Lee, Executive Director and Founder of Becky’s Fund.
The Haughty Cosmetics DC launch will be held on March 10, 2011 at Hudson Restaurant & Lounge from 6–9 p.m. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased at www.beckysfund.org. For more information or for media inquiries please contact Erika Paola Gutierrez at erika@epgPR.com.
