Service & Mission Fundraiser, Guillotine Salon & Spa

Members of the Service and Mission Team of the First Presbyterian Church of Cranford graciously accept a check for $3,500 from First Presbyterian Church member Lynne Fitzpatrick and members of her team from the Guillotine Salon and Spa in Westfield. Lynne, as owner of the Guillotine, recently held a fundraiser which raised $3,500 to assist homeless programs and the Cranford Elmora Soup Kitchen.  Homeless programs and the Cranford Elmora Soup Kitchen have been supported by First Presbyterian of Cranford for 30 years.  During the same event, funds were raised to support social justice programs and organizations that assist women and children, especially those who are victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.  Lynne and her team have also sponsored scholarships and equipment  for those looking to become hair stylists in Nicaragua. The Rev. Brooks Smith, retired pastor of the Watchung Ave, Presbyterian church in North Plainfield and leader of the annual delegation to Nicaragua, accepts the donation on behalf of the supported groups.   During the past 8 years, Lynne and her team have raised over $25,000 for mission programs.
