South Beach Salon Cut-a-thon to Benefit Golisano Children’s Hospital

September 26, 2006

"We’re new to the neighborhood, and we want people to recognize us as a charitable place, a place that cares about kids, their health and safety."

Stylists at South Beach Salon know a secret: the satisfaction from getting a fantastic haircut is not unlike the pleasure that comes from supporting a charitable cause. And if you pair the two together, the feel-good sensation that results is doubly good.

To experience it yourself, come in for a new look 10 a.m to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14. The salon will donate 50 percent of the cost of your cut to help ill and injured kids at Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong.

Raegen Burke, manager of South Beach Salon and Café located at 3160 Ridge Road W. (in the Lowe’s plaza), said the owner and employees of the 3,000 square-foot shop, which opened in April, want it to be known as an awareness salon.

“We’re new to the neighborhood, and we want people to recognize us as a charitable place, a place that cares about kids, their health and safety,” Burke said. “We hope to hold events like this cut-a-thon regularly.”


Cuts are $20 each and require a half hour to complete. Customers may schedule an appointment in advance or simply walk in.
