BB&T bank wants to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation get on the "cutting" edge of research for a cure.
BB&T has teamed up with Serenity Hair Studio, in Hampstead, for a cut-a-thon.
On March 24, from noon until 4 p.m., you're invited to come to Serenity, at 4510 Lower Beckleysville Road, and get pampered while helping to raise money to fight cystic fibrosis.
BB&T has raised money to help fight cystic fibrosis for years, but this is the first year each branch is doing its own local fundraisers.
"I thought of doing a cut-a-thon because my mom cut hair and my cousin said she had done cut-a-thons for cancer," said Heather Harmon, BB&T employee. "I thought it would be a great way to use local businesses so I contacted [Serenity's owner] and she gave us other ideas because she had done cut-a-thons before."
No appointments are necessary. Just come to Serenity that Saturday. A wet cut will be $18, men's and children's cuts will be $10, eyebrow waxing will be $10, and a mini-manicure will be $12.
A "Woman's Full Day of Beauty" is also offered for $40 and includes a cut, waxing and manicure.
If you don't have time that Saturday to get a haircut, no problem - you can come in and purchase a gift certificate to use at another time. Proceeds will still go to benefit cystic fibrosis research and you can get your cut when it's convenient for you.
In addition to the personal grooming offers, a disc jockey has donated his services to provide fun music for the event. There will also be face painting and a bake table as well as lunch food items for sale. Don't forget a ticket for the 50/50 raffle available now at the BB&T at 999 S. Main St., Hampstead, or at Serenity Hair Studio.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Vendors are also coming to the cut-a-thon, such as Thirty-One Bags, Lia Sophia, Scentsy, Cookie Lee, Pampered Chef and more. Each vendor will donate a minimum of 10 percent of their proceeds to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
