Alan & Sarah Hartgraves of Flint Men’s Grooming Salon over in Bellevue are two amazing people – they opened their doors not long ago and are already making a HUGE splash in the industry.
Eliza & I originally met them through a BNI friend (thank you Dr. Frank!) and fell in love with everything about them! Their passion not only for work but for their community! They are a huge supporter of Get Hitched Give Hope – having lost a dear friend very recently to breast cancer they have been wonderful enough to help us spread the word. Lets celebrate life while we have it!!
So when I got the email from Sarah that she & Alan are partnering to do a charity – I knew, they had to be first on the list of “Charities we Love” section of our blog!!
Thank you to Flint Men’s Grooming Salon for being such wonderful supporters – we wish you the best of luck in your event!

Read on to learn more about “Suit Yourself” (in Sarah’s words)
I wanted to share some information on a Community Outreach event that FLINT Men’s Grooming has partnered with Overlake Services League to bring to the Bellevue Community, called Suit Yourself.
“Suit Yourself” is a two part event, a Suit and Clothing Drive combined with a two-day complimentary event to assist unemployed men to get back into the workforce or make a career change. Flint Men’s Grooming is teaming up with Overlake Service League to provide men with gently used suits and apparel and mini makeovers (haircuts, hand details and shaves). Recruiters and local employers will be on-site during the two-day event to assist the men with employment opportunities. The final goal of the event is to instill confidence in the attendees to face the job market with a new suit or business attire, makeover, and job leads and advice from recruiters and potential employers.
Clothing Drive: The Suit Drive will be held during the month of August with local businesses acting as drop off points for the suits and apparel.
Suit Yourself Event: A two-day event at Flint Men’s Grooming on Sunday, September 13 and Monday, September 14 for unemployed men in the community to come in and get “suited” with a local tailor, have a make over and be introduced to recruiters and potential employers.
So, I am asking each of you to spread the word about Suit Yourself. The only way to guarantee that this will be successful for our community, is with your help.
Please visit the website, http://www.suityourselfbellevue.com/index.html or feel free to contact me directly if you would like additional information regarding this amazing event.
Thank you, and remember to be thankful for our everyday luxuries!
