Mirage Salon and Spa is holding their first ever Cut-a-Thon with the proceeds from their clients going to the Carson Cancer Center.
NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) -
A group of Siouxlanders are getting visiting their local salon and while they get their hair cut they're also supporting a local cancer center.
Mirage Salon and Spa is holding their first ever Cut-a-Thon with the proceeds from their clients on Thursday going to the Carson Cancer Center in Norfolk.
The Salon opened their doors at noon today and welcomed what store owners described as a steady stream of customers all afternoon.
In addition to the 15-dollar haircuts, customers also had the opportunity to enter a raffle for items donated by local businesses and even sample some cotton candy and goodies for a free will donation.
Store owners say they were inspired to do something to benefit cancer care because they've had clients affected by the disease turn to them for part of the healing process.
Jami Maxey, Co-Owner of Mirage Salon and Spa said, "We've been asked to help them maintain a cute style but shorten it, or sometimes even take it all off and start all over by growing it back. So it really touches close to our heart."
Store owners say the staff all got a tour of the Carson Cancer Center this morning to see first hand the organizations they're going to benefit.
The salon is open until eight this evening but the owners say they've been booked solid for the rest of the evening starting at 4 p.m.
