Publicolor With Team Mackie

On Saturday I volunteered alongside Team Bob Mackie for the local group Publicolor.  My boyfriend Ryan and my good friend Ally generously volunteered with us.  It was a really great experience!  I got to meet Chris and Asia who work in the Bob Mackie New York Office, they are also both fans of the blog (super flattering).  Mr. Mackie wasn't available for the event, but we had a great time and it was wonderful representing his brand.

We were assigned to paint Marte Valle High School in the Lower East Side of New York City.  It was so wonderful to work with the kids in the program and learn all the great things that Publicolor does for them.  It was interesting and wonderful to learn all the statistics that were affected positively by painting the school bright and vibrant colors.

We had a great time giving back and hope that our efforts have a lasting positive affect on the school.

Our Color Palette included "Bright Pear" and "Neon Celery"
We painted doors, doorways and the bulletin boards.
During lunch students in the program shared their experiences in the Publicolor program.
The principal was on hand to thank us.  She shared her previous experiences with Pubilcolor and all the positive things that came from their collaboration.
Kickin' it old school with the student leaders of Publicolor.

  1. Awesome Phil!! What a great way to spend a Saturday!

  2. I'll second that thought. It's always nice doing things for others, especially when it is enlightening the young. I am sure some of them will pass it along someday. Truly Awesome!
