Whip Salon owner Amy Pal has been elected to the Aldrich Museum Board of Trustees.

Cybele Maylone, the museum’s executive director, called Pal “an incredible supporter of the museum for some time and is a force here and Ridgefield and beyond.”

Pal has organized community fund-raisers to benefit the museum, including the March 2018 Hair Ball and the 2017 Whiplash Fashion Show.

In addition, Pal was nominated as one of the top 25 Ridgefield influencers in 2018 by Ridgefield Magazine for her business savvy, first opening a cycling studio, then Whip Salon, and her philanthropic efforts in the community, in particular her work for the Aldrich.

“She is an important member of the community and a passionate museum-goer,” said Maylone. “We’re thrilled to have her join the Aldrich’s board.”
