Third Annual Hair for Hope Date Set

March 17th, 2011 by Lorrie Walker in Special Event

ScissorsWe are happy to announce that we have set a date of our third annual Hair for Hope- a “hairoic” cut-a-thon to benefit women battling cancer.

The event is Thursday, Oct. 13, 5:30-8 p.m. at Michael Rose Hair Designs, and it is free to the public.

For the past two years, we’ve had a terrific turnout for the event, so we’re announcing this year’s date several months early to give those who might be interested a bit more time to grow their hair between now and October.

Summertime in Florida is HOT. People with longer hair sometimes cut it in time for the hot summer months. But if you typically fall into this category, we hope you will consider enduring the heat this summer, and saving that hair for our event in October! It will go to a great cause.

If you’d like to participate, you must cut at least eight inches of hair. Your hair will be shipped to Pantene Beautiful Lengths and used to create wigs that are distributed free through American Cancer Society wig banks nationwide to women undergoing cancer treatment.

As our way of saying thank you, you will get a free basic haircut and a coupon for $5 off your next haircut at Michael Rose Hair Designs.

We always provide food and refreshments during the event, and all monetary donations generated at the event will be given to the American Cancer Society. Music and a variety of vendors also will be on-hand.

For more information or to sign up to donate your hair, call Rose’s media spokeswoman, Lorrie Delk Walker at Lorrie Walker Communications, Inc.: (863) 614-0555.
