raised more than $9,200 during its "Glimmer of Hope" fundraiser on Jan. 13.
It was the second annual fundraiser for the salon, which is located above Starbucks in Seven Bridges at 3520 Seven Bridges Dr. #235.
About 125 people attended the event, according to Glimmer Co-Owner Sandy Robertson.
All proceeds will benefit Derrick Wanderer, a 15-year-old who suffered major brain injuries after a car accident on June 13, 2011. Wanderer is the Robertson's nephew.
After being thrown from a car and hitting a tree, Wanderer was hospitalized with several broken bones and completed rehab at Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. He returned home De. 27 but is confined to a wheelchair and will require daily therapy and round-the-clock care. He cannot speak or eat solid foods. Recently, he has been able to wave "hello," blink for "yes" and "no" and give a thumbs up or thumbs down.
"We are hoping to raise enough money so that once home we can provide something that he will need," Robertson said in an e-mail.
