The Starkey Hearing Foundation conducts missions around the world to provide people with the tools to prevent hearing loss and regain hearing through donated hearing aids. The foundation’s annual So the World May Hear gala—the 2015 event is in July—draws stars like Hillary Clinton, Forest Whitaker, John Legend and Sammy Hagar, all for a charitable cause.

“It’s like the Emmys of the charity world,” says Shannon Fanth, general manager for the Hair District of Maple Grove and Plymouth, whose stylists get to be a part of the event. Last year, ten stylists and makeup artists from the Hair District volunteered their time to make sure guests, staff and presenters looked their best. Fanth says that the stylists were excited to be “really a part of something big … this is the start of something I’m hoping to do more of.” 3525 Vicksburg Lane N., Suite 100; 763.746.9229
