Hi! I'm Lindsey and I own Blondie's Salon & Spa in Columbus, where I also work as a Licensed Esthetician. Over the last 10 years the business has grown from a mobile spray tanning business into our current facility, which is 3,000 square feet and offers a full service salon and spa. I'm also a co-coordinator for the Columbus Kids Resale, which is an event we organize twice a year to help local families sell their gently used baby & kid items to other families in the community. Speaking of kiddos, I have two of my own - Delaney (10) and Grady (8). They are both involved in sports - which is definitely where I spend the majority of my time outside of work! And I couldn't do any of this without my partner in crime (AKA husband, Gene) whom I have been lucky enough to be married to for the last 13 years. When we aren't working or running to sports, we enjoy traveling, boating, and hosting sushi nights at our house. I am excited to be part of the CAP Prom Court. Child abuse prevention is a cause that speaks to me. I was a Court Appointed Special Advocate for a few years and there is a definite need for more awareness & prevention in our community surrounding this issue. Thank you for donating!

Rikki, a second generation salon owner, just opened Columbus’ new salon, Salon 1750. Following in her mother Pokie’s footsteps, she purchased her first Salon in 2010. Thanks to hard work, she was able to grow to expand to her current State Street location. She is in the salon four days a week, and spends her other two days at Estes Material Sales, Inc. Estes, our local natural stone supply company, is where she has worked since she was just 15 years old. Prior to her salon ownership, she was the Marketing Director and then transitioned to a more flexible role as Financial Controller. Rikki completed beauty school locally through the C4 School of Cosmetology, then attended IUPUC where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Business with both a concentration in Marketing and Accounting. Rikki says she loves the diversity of all of the hats she wears, but being a mother is the greatest of all. Rikki and her husband Cody (also a business owner at ABC Cutting Contractors), have a son, Brody (6), and a daughter, Andi (3). They live at Schafer Lake in Hope where they enjoy all aspect of small town and lake living. To them, life is about loving their children. She says there is no greater joy in this world than seeing a pure unrequited simile and full on belly laugh from one of her children. “It breaks my heart to imagine children without a happy home life, who may be unsafe , with no one to advocate for them”, says Rikki. She believes all children deserve to be safe and loved. She is looking forward to using her obvious work ethic for this worthy cause!

Having been born at Columbus Regional Health in 1990, Chelsea thinks being a Columbus native is, like, totally awesome. At 15, she was peer pressured into setting up her very first Facebook account. (The only time peer pressure ever worked out in her favor). Fast forward to 27 and she’s getting paid to play on Facebook. What kind of sorcery is this? She is so thankful for the opportunity to have previously worked for QMIX, KORN Country and MOJO radio stations and currently for The Garage Pub & Grill and Red Lips Spatique as a Director of Marketing and Promotions. All of these, paired with working behind the scenes in various downtown events, have helped her become deeply rooted and connected to the community. She has a rad 4 year old daughter named Kepner, and thinks being asked to raise money for an incredible charity, such as CAP, is super humbling and gnarly to the max.
