Spirit of Life Award Gala

The 2015 Spirit of Life Award Gala
Rock the Cure honoring
Steve Goddard, Pravana

Saturday, July 11, 2015
 
 
The Spirit of Life Award is presented to individuals who exemplify the ideals and values that have guided City of Hope for a century, and whose professional and humanitarian accomplishments are worthy of celebration. Recipients of this prestigious award include a broad range of leaders from the world of business, entertainment, science and philanthropy. What connects them is a shared commitment to elevating the human condition and a profound belief in the power of each individual to effect change.
 
The Spirit of Life, by its very name, represents the intangible qualities that make an individual’s life worthy of admiration: their generosity, their ability to inspire and their desire to make a difference in the world.  City of Hope extends its heartfelt congratulations and gratitude to its Spirit of Life honorees past and present.

Our Honoree

 
Steve Goddard
President, Founder
Pravana Naturceuticals
 
PRAVANA’s creator, Steve Goddard, is a 30-year beauty industry veteran. He began his long career as a way to support himself while attending college, and has gone on to work for some of the largest companies in the beauty business. Shortly after leaving school, Goddard joined Redken as the manager of its product evaluation salon, and climbed the ranks as a platform artist and later in the marketing department, where he was promoted to Senior Vice President of Marketing & Advertising. Shortly thereafter, Goddard became Senior Vice President of Global New Product Development of professional products for Revlon, relocating to Barcelona, Spain. In quick succession, he then became the General Manager of Rusk, a division of Conair, and in 1999, joined Wella Corporation as President and CEO. In 2001, Goddard became President and CEO of Sebastian International and President of Wella's worldwide Salon Conexxion division.
 
In 2004, Goddard returned to his creative marketing roots to launch a new beauty entity: PRAVANA NATURCEUTICALS, a boutique brand of highly sophisticated products utilizing the power of the nature and the strength of technology to produce superior, wholistic formulas. "I really wanted to return to the excitement of dealing with a small marketing company in creating new products," says Goddard. A genial public speaker with a passion for music and exotic birds, Goddard is a motivator, family man, hairdresser, and accomplished guitarist. He is also a true entrepreneurial spirit, and the source for PRAVANA.
