Kirschner Named Spirit of Life Honoree

Harlan Kirschner, CEO of The Kirschner Group, a global sales organization in the professional beauty industry, will be honored with City of Hope’s 2014 Spirit of Life Award. The philanthropic honor is presented annually to an industry leader who has demonstrated outstanding business and altruistic achievement. The award will be presented on July 12, 2014 in Las Vegas. City of Hope is a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.

“One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Odds are someone you know or love will be affected by cancer. Don’t you want to be a part of finding their cure?” said Kirschner. “City of Hope’s marvelous commitment to find a cure for cancer is deserving of the enthusiastic support of our entire beauty community. It is an honor to receive The Spirit of Life Award and be recognized by my peers in the beauty industry.”

This year’s event, titled “Celebrating Cures,” will celebrate the hope of a cure for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The event will include a hosted cocktail reception, sit-down dinner and entertainment. For information or to make a donation, visit

Talbot, City of Hope. “It is fitting that he receives The Spirit of Life Award, which recognizes an honoree’s outstanding leadership and contributions to the community and his profession.”
