San Diego-based CND and the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation (BCL) gave one lucky bidder the chance to go behind the scenes at The Blonds runway show during New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018. Designer Anita Soltanian from Toronto was named the highest bidder of the online auction, hosted by Charitybuzz, a New York-based company dedicated to raising funds for nonprofit organizations around the world. All proceeds from the auction will benefit BCL, a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships toward beauty education.

For her VIP experience, Soltanian was granted two tickets to the show and backstage access to see the CND Nail Team in action. “We hope Anita feels inspired and gratified that her donation is helping to support an organization that is all about assisting the next generation of beauty professionals,” says Lynette Lynch, president of BCL. “This experience gave her the chance to see firsthand that beauty really does change lives—backstage at New York Fashion Week and in so many other venues each and every day!”
