Who: High Point University students, faculty and staff. The event is free and open to the public. Media are also invited to attend.
What: Fourth Annual Cuts for Cancer.
Where: High Point University Amphitheater.
When: Saturday, April 5 at 3 p.m.
Why: “Cuts for Cancer” allows anyone to donate at least eight inches of their hair to be made into wigs for cancer patients who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford them.
The class of 2014 has led this philanthropy for the past four years. The event, held each spring and founded by HPU senior Emily Dunn, consists of courageous volunteers willing to donate eight or more inches of their hair to the “Pantene Beautiful Lengths Foundation.” The hair is then used to create wigs for struggling cancer patients.
Participants who donate hair will receive free haircuts and styles from Avanti Salon and Spa in High Point. In addition, participants may nominate a friend, family member or even faculty or staff to make the initial cut.
