Wilmington North Carolina’s first ‘Green Ball’ officially took place on April 17th…and it dazzled everyone as a bevy of beautiful models walked the green carpet in honor of Earth Day 2009.  Sarah Barbee, “Event Planner’ and organizer together with Earthbound Salon & Day Spa hosted a ‘Fashion Show’ preceding the evening’s events. The fashion show featured local designer Alexa Castillo and designs made of vintage fabrics. Alexa chose a theme of Tribal Connections honoring her home country of Honduras and the many diverse cultures it represents. Proceeds from the event benefit the Earth Day Alliance and Cape Fear Riverwatch.

Makeup artists Crystal Downing and Dana Lehman applied a warm palate of earth tones to models eyes and lips and finished their look with a splash of gold glimmer that gave a beautiful finishing touch to the exotic theme.

Sponsors for the event included Front Street Brewery, House of Wine and Cheese, Harbor Masters, Send Out Cards, Print Star Designs, Framed Productions, Artistry by Sandy, and many more.

    Wow Sandy! I’m so proud of Wilmington NC and Artistry by Sandy for being a sponsor for the first ‘Green Ball’. Man, the photos of the models are top class. Your assistants Crystal and Dana really rocked the makeup. Hot hot hot! I’m loving this about our town, our green-awareness, and our gorgeous women! If I didn’t already live here I’d want to move to be closer to the ever-growing green glow emanating from the greater Wilmington, NC area (oh yeah, and not to mention the beautiful women?). Good thing I know a good REALTOR (lol).
    Your dedication to environmental issues, to beauty, and to our area are awesome. Thanks for all you do, Sandy, and for Artistry by Sandy’s efforts to advance green-awareness, the Cape Fear Region, and personal beauty.

    What a wonderful privileged for us to be among local sponsors for the first ‘Green Ball’ in Wilmington NC.
    North Carolina has so many talented people and great businesses. [mentioned in post]

    Crystal and Dana did a fabulous job with makeup, it went perfectly with the “exotic theme” of the fashion show giving the designer’s gorgeous creations center stage.

    I’m proud of Wilmington, …it’s a top Wedding destination with area beaches being some of the most beautiful in the world.
    Wrightsville Beach and Bald Head Island are a couple of my favorites as a destination Makeup Artist.

    Thank you so much!

    Love love love the pictures, can’t wait to send you the ones the photogs shot! Should get them this week, saw a few proofs the other day, amazing. I had a vision for the Green Ball and it could not have come true without you!
    I wish you could do my makeup everyday so I can look as flawless and stunning as the models did! Hope to see you soon!

    Much love,
    Sarah Barbee
