Save the Date for the 4th annual Make the Cut! On Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 10am to Noon we will be cutting
hair and accepting hair donations to benefit women battling cancer! Join us at West Ridge Mall in 2017. Professional stylists will cut and trim your hair, so you can feel just as beautiful as those you’re helping out or you can bring your already cut hair to the event. If you want a new style for your cut hair, you will want to schedule time with your regular stylist as our stylists will not be giving new styles at the event. If you want further styling, you will want to make an appointment with your regular stylist for after the event. The Race Against Breast Cancer will donate the hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Length’s program which takes the hair and fashions it into real hair wigs. These wigs are donated to local American Cancer Society offices to be given for free to women undergoing cancer treatment.
If you chose to donate your hair you will be recognized for your special gift and you will be eligible for one of two awards. Lisa’s Legacy is the award given to the donor who has the longest length of hair cut at the event. Lisa’s Legacy is named in honor of Lisa Chapman, a RABC Board member who lost her battle with cancer too soon in life in 2013. For the team of people who have the longest combined length of hair cut and donated at the event, we will award the “hairiest” team award!
