Third Annual CUTS FOR CANCER 2019!
Stylists, Paul Fougere, Vanessa Mills, Chantal Collin, and Alanna Gale took part on March 20th in an incredible event supporting Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, Nova Scotia Chapter!
Together with a wonderful group of Dalhousie Medical students, C100 FM , and The Board Room Game Cafe, we were able to raise a fabulous amount of OVER $5000 for #ChildrensWishFoundation and help grant the adorable Kaia's wish for her and her family to go to Disney World!
The evening was spent enjoying a little friendly competition, bidding over amazing silent auctions items from local Halifax businesses such as Dalhousie University, Twiggs Children's Store, ORB Toys (hot item), Luckett Vineyards, Sweet Janes Candy Shop (another hot Item), Kia Halifax, Layers Cupcakes, Massage Addict, Discovery Centre, Moksha Yoga, and SO much more...
The amount of love and community support throughout the evening by hair donors (where there was a minimum hair donation of 12 INCHES), or heads being completely shaved, event volunteers, other local business' giving their time, and Dalhousie Medical students, who organized the event, truly made the night a HUGE success!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated and donated in-salon! We are excited to hopefully be a part of this event again next year to help grant the wish of another inspiring Children's Wish Foundation Wish Child!
Our first hair donor of the night, who raised an amazing $1200 towards cutting her hair off for the event.
The nights special guest, Kaia with her aunt practicing her shaving skills! She was a little nervous at first, but once her got the hang of it, she was all in!
Dr. Bruce Crooks was by Kaia, and her families side during her cancer treatment. Dr. Crooks is not only a Paediatric Oncologist, but he's also a professor at the Dalhousie Medical School, and a very proud member of the Children's Wish Foundation, Halifax Chapter. He raised over $250 on the spot and shaved his head. His energy and passion for his patients was truly heart warming!
The fabulous, hard-working group of 2nd - 4th year Dalhousie Medical students, who had many obstacles putting this years event together but pulled it off without a hitch in the end!
Even our local members of The Children's Wish Foundation, Nova Scotia Chapter came out to support, and lend a hand wherever it was needed!
Stylists, Vanessa Mills, Chantal Collin, Paul Fougere, & Alanna Gale had a such a great night! We cannot wait for Cuts For Cancer 2020!!
