May 25, 2012

If you need a haircut and want to help an important cause, the second annual Cutting Out Brain Tumours event on Saturday, June 10 is for you. Brain tumour survivor Stephanie Dorion has pulled together this unique day of hair styling, music, lunch and games all to benefit brain tumour research and awareness.

Stephanie was diagnosed with a non-malignant tumour in 2003. As of April 4, 2012, she has been clear for 9 years. She says, We have had clients and family who have also been affected by a brain tumour. We need to find a cure and so we support all the research that we are able to. Along with her husband Aaron Dorion, Stephanie owns and manages Precision Hair Gallery, the events home.

Cutting Out Brain Tumours offers the chance to get a new look from one of 10 hair stylists from four local salons while enjoying music from four local bands including a group recently signed to Warner Brothers Music, Courage My Love. Other bands participating are Stone Treason, Quade and Giants Tomb.

The salon will be outfitted with a Game Asylum, a Mobile Video Game Theatre and there will be a barbeque lunch, door prizes and art auction (art is currently on display). Stylists are from Precision Hair Gallery, Evolution Concepts in Hair & Spa, Creative Family Hair Care. To participate, simply drop in to the studio on Sunday, June 10th, We'll fit you in!
