A benefit hair cut-a-thon, “Cut Away Cancer,” is scheduled from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 25, at Janie’s His and Hers Hairstyling in downtown Morenci. Haircuts will cost $10 each.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Abby Pierce who was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is undergoing treatment. Proceeds will go directly to the Pierce family to offset costs associated with Abby’s treatment and care.
Local stylists Janie Frey, Jan Emmons and Jenn Gibbs from Janie’s, Kristy Castillo and Aimee Sutherland of Mane Street Salon, and Wendy Slor from The Hair Shop will participate in the event. Customers will sign-in and request a stylist to cut their hair.
Massage therapists Erica Kruse from The Spot and Megan Hammond from Mane Street Salon will also take part in the benefit, offering mini massages.
Monetary donations are being accepted for the Pierce family at Janie’s salon, now through the day of the cut-a-thon.
