We’ve been busy here at Clipzone! We pride ourselves on our involvement in our community, which is why you’ll find us at lots of events in Madison County and beyond. Here’s what we’ve been up to over the last couple of months.
FAB! stands for Females Active in Business, a signature program of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce. Clipzone is one of the sponsors of the program, and we love getting together to hear motivational and inspiring speakers, build relationships with others, and raise awareness of deserving nonprofit organizations.
June’s speaker was Dr. Rebecca Haskett, and the topic was "Communicating with Social and Emotional Intelligence.” She gave a very interesting talk on how to raise your emotional intelligence and how that relates to success in business. The featured nonprofit, Dove Harbor, provides a safe haven and healthy home for women and children in crisis situations and helps them move forward toward independence.
Independence Day Parade
A bunch of us went out and added some style to the Anderson Independence Day Parade on the evening of July 3rd. In addition to marching in the parade, we also made sure to have plenty of special promotions and referral cards for the people there. We had a great time taking part in the parade, hanging out with the community, and, of course, watching fireworks.
United Way Golf Fundraiser
We are proud to have been a part of the 8th Annual United Way/Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic that took place at Edgewood Golf Course on July 17th. Both Clipzone and our sister business The Salon Professional Academy Anderson donated prizes, provided volunteers, and sponsored a team. The event raised over $39,000 to help important local efforts by United Way and the Madison County Chamber.
In addition to participating in events, we also like to support local businesses and charities by donating gift certificates and product baskets. Here’s a list of who we supported in June and July:
- Pendleton Tribe Softball
- United Way Golf Fundraiser
- Kick Cancer's Ass
- Jessica & Linsy Memorial Ride
- Anderson University Colt's Camp
- Chef's Boy R We
- Anderson University Orange Fest "Battle of the Bands"
We’re excited about several big events coming up next month. First up, a very special FAB! event to celebrate our 4th anniversary, followed by a summer party at Hoosier Park. We’ll have appetizers, drinks, a silent auction, Clipzone mini-services, and FABulous socializing. Then join us in rocking out with Boston!

Then, from August 22-28, we’ll be helping the city of Anderson celebrate its sesquicentennial (150 year birthday). Teams from Clipzone will be volunteering and attending events all week. Come out and join us—it should be a heck of a party!
