Hair Donation Ottawa Cheque Presentation
Posted By Eddie Villarta
Rotary Club of Nepean – Kanata President, John Fullerton presents Rtn. Helene Hutchings and Perry Pavlovic with a cheque for $2,000 in support of Hair Donation Ottawa.
Hair Donation Ottawa is an annual, non-profit, cancer research fundraiser where people raise pledges for donating their hair and/or shaving their heads & they receive a wash, cut and style or shave.
Participating hair stylists from various Ottawa & area salons, as well as teaching staff and students from the Algonquin College Hair Stylist program, volunteer their time for this cause.
The event has raised more than $130,000 since 2011 and donated over 4,000 inches of hair.
Hair Donation Ottawa was founded in 2011 by Helene Hutchings, who was diagnosed and successfully treated for cancer at The Ottawa Hospital in 2010.
The event runs each April during Cancer Awareness Month.
