Wigging out

by Amanda Bedgood

Serious cause, fun event

I love switching it up, costumes, being incognito. And so when I saw the invite for Wiggin' Out to benefit American Cancer Society I was all over it. I wasn't the only one that got into the vibe.

Our own Kari Walker snagged a beautiful platinum wig with great blunt cut bangs. In fact, it was all about the blonde. The gal who pulled off the whole shebang, Holly Haley, is usually blonde and went totally platinum for the event. Christie Bourgeois and her hubbie were wacky and cute in those purple wigs. The ever fashionable Nandi Linscombe was a show stopper in a wig that had her hitting seven feet. (We love a tall fearless gal.) And her dad was even more outrageous in a super tall wig that was part Afro and part colonial if that's a combo that's even possible.

With door prizes and dancing it was an event that was laid back fun thanks to the beats at Scandals. And with monies raised going to fight cancer, it was the kind of fun we knew would do some serious good. If my evening was any indication I also learned it may be the redheads that really have more fun.
