Dancer, singer, and American Idol judge Paula Abdul will headline Sunday’s fifth-annual “Night of Wigs & Wishes” benefit in Camden County.
The fund-raiser, to be held at Lucien’s Manor at 81 W. White Horse Pike in Berlin, was founded by celebrity hairstylist Martino Cartier. It seeks to raise awareness and money for Friends Are by Your Side, a nonprofit that provides complimentary wigs for women, as well as grants wishes for and gives wigs to children fighting cancer.
“Wigs & Wishes is special for me,” Abdul said in a statement, “and I look forward to this event every year. If we can help adults and children feel better and look better while they fight a courageous battle against cancer, we are meeting the most fundamental responsibility we have — helping others.
Joining Abdul and Cartier will be America’s Got Talent singer Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti, reality star/actor Bigtime Tommie Romola, professional boxer Damon “No Smiling” Allen, actor and celebrity fitness model John Antorino, singer/performer and N.J. Housewives reality star Bobby Ciasulli, and pop artist Nicolosi.
The event runs from 5 to 11 p.m. and includes cocktails, dinner, entertainment, and live and silent auctions. More information and tickets are available on the nonprofit’s website.
