I'd cut my hair for this if I had any to cut.
Since I don't, I'll ask Tucson to step in and make a difference for a child in need.
I posted yesterday about the Disney on Ice Dare to Dream show coming to the TCC in October. Today I'm going to tell you about an incredible event that is so full of FEEL GOOD FEATURE that the former reporter in me is tripping over myself with excitement.
Feldman Entertainment is hosting the Hair Raising Event (playing off of the Rapunzel story, of course) at the Foothills Mall on Saturday, Sept. 22 to benefit Children with Hair Loss. If you are local and have 8-inches (or more) of hair to cut, you would be helping create free gifts of wigs to children who truly need them. The organization has provided many of the wigs they have helped create to the children at Diamond Children's in Tucson.
Added incentive? The first 25 people that register to donate their hair will receive a complimentary Rapunzel necklace when they arrive that Saturday (advance registration is preferred). AND everyone that donates hair will receive 2 complimentary tickets to the show and will get to take part in a fun event on opening night. Alls I'm saying is ya get to meet Rapunzel and launch Chinese Lanterns outside of the TCC that evening!
I know. It's going to be amazing.
Now for the cool part:
Do I have any volunteers to have their hair cut ON LIVE TV prior to Sept. 22 to kick off the Hair Raising Event? If so, please be sure to contact me right away and I'll get you in touch with the PR whiz behind this whole thing.
Oh, and you can thank BellaVita Salon for the complimentary hair cut you'll get after donating your hair at the Foothills event. This isn't just a snip off the ponytail and kick you out of the chair, people. This is a chance for you to make a real difference and walk away with a brand new look.
So, Tucson: Who's up for making a child smile? Leave a comment. Spread the word. Let's make some noise.
