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.

Hello I had been following Derricks progress on Caringbridge since my church asked for prayers the day after the accident. On the anniversary of the horrific accident, Bud posted a very personal reflection of his thoughts and feelings the day of the accident. That was the last post on Derricks progress. I continue to pray for Derrick and the family daily and think of him often. How is Derrick doing? Im sure continuing to post wouldn't facilitate a return to a sense of normal.
