WOODBRIDGE >> Progressions Salon & Wig Boutique’s 13th annual Pampered in Pink event, part of Woodbridge Fallapalooza, raised more than $2,200 for breast cancer awareness.

The money was donated by clients for discounted salon services provided by volunteers in Halloween costumes.

Proceeds go to the Closer to Free Fund at Yale New Haven Smilow Cancer Hospital. Over the years, the Progressions event has raised more than $30,000 for cancer research.

Woodbridge Fallapalooza, a monthlong celebration of the town, included the annual Woodbridge Road Race, a business happy hour at Solun Tapas Bar & Restaurant, the Marrakech Health & Wellness Fair at the JCC, the Massaro Farm Family Fun Day, an open house and cooking demonstration at the historic Darling House, a fashion show at Coachman Square and Woodbridge Restaurant Week. The event closed with a bang on Halloween, thanks to the Woodbridge Volunteer Fire Association’s Truck or Treat and Spooktacular Fireworks.
