FIRST FRIDAY: Tricia Rivas of Trixie's Salon and Dreamcatchers Foundation

« Return to the Event List

On the first Friday of every month, join us to hear the savvy, successful business owners + entrepreneurs of Des Moines share their story. In a laid-back environment, you’ll catch some words of wisdom from women + men who have been through it before—and maybe walk away with a new connection (or two).

Sessions are completely free and open to the public, and are held from 11:30am to 1pm, with networking from 11:30am to noon. This First Friday will be held at The Greater Des Moines Partnership at 700 Locust Street, Suite #100 Seating is first come, first served. Lunch is not provided, though we encourage you to bring your own if you'd like.

About Tricia Rivas:

Tricia Rivas, owner of Trixie’s Salon, has always had a passion for giving back to the community. Tricia used her skills as a licensed beauty professional to donate salon services to Hospice of Central Iowa, the women’s shelter in Des Moines, and also to Des Moines veterans. Overseeing 15+ stylists at Trixie’s Salon, Tricia encouraged her employees to donate their talents to organizations in the Des Moines community. She decided to turn their giving back as a team into something much more by starting the Dream Catchers Foundation. Dream Catchers is the only nonprofit of its kind in Central Iowa that provides salon services for chronically and terminally ill men, women, and children as well as their caregivers.
