Name and age: Tony Price, 20

Spotted at: Intersection of Lemmon and McKinney

Occupation: Student in cosmetology and makeup; model

Born in Tulsa, this tall, fit Virgo moved here from Tangipahoa Parrish, La., five months ago to continue his education in cosmetology and make-up. Tony grew up the middle son between two sisters, and in school excelled in track and field, and he continues to stay in shape by running and lifting weights. He enjoys meditation, dance, the arts and, of course, makeup.

Tony remembers the fifth grade very well. That was the year a cousin, who was then in cosmetology school, sparked an interest in him becoming interested in doing hair. His grandmother, a fabulous cook, tempted him to consider a career in the culinary arts, but makeup won out and Tony continues his education to become an artist extraordinaire. His goal is to own his own spa and become celebrated for his cosmetic skills.

Tony will spend his Easter with family, sharing good times and a great meal that he will cook himself.

WaterTower in need of silent auction gifts

WaterTower Theatre’s gala fundraiser is coming up, and the gay-run organization is on the hunt for donated items that can be offered up for their silent auction. Maybe you’re a massage therapist who wants to give a free deep tissue, or a stylist who wants to donate a coif, or you just have more frequent flier miles than you know what to do with. It’s all good, and more. (Gift cards, spa certificates, restaurant vouchers, crystalwear … you know you have something.)

If you have anything or want to know how to help, contact Greg Patterson at GPatterson@WaterTowerTheatre.org, or call 972-450-6227.
