ST. PAUL (April 2, 2008) Every year, a group of stylists volunteer their time to help raise money for the fight against breast cancer at Euphoria Salon in St. Paul. On Sunday, May 4, 2008 from 10 am – 5 pm, the salon will host their 4th annual Cut-a-Thon Fundraiser where 100% of the proceeds are donated to the Breast Cancer Awareness Association. For a $30 donation, guests will receive an amazing haircut and style, a goodie bag and appetizers and refreshments. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to host this event again,” states Stevie Rangel, salon owner and stylist at Euphoria Salon. “Last year, we raised nearly $3,000 to help raise awareness in as little as 6 hours, and we hope to surpass that number this year.” Euphoria’s group of talented stylists donate their time for the cause every year. “The opportunity to take part in the Cut-a-Thon is amazing,” claims stylist Carrie Sartin, “it involves two of my greatest passions; cutting hair and helping to find a cure for breast cancer.” Sartin has a direct connection to the cause and to the Cut-a-Thon. “After 17 years at other salons, I started here at Euphoria three years ago,” states Sartin. “A few short months later I was diagnosed with breast cancer and Stevie was incredibly supportive. We started the Cut-a-Thon that year, and I’ve been working it ever since. It’s incredible the number of faces we see each year and the amount of money we raise, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
Sartin, through her treatment, also received a lot of support and information from the Breast Cancer Awareness Association, and has since ensured that they were a benefactor of the Annual Cut-a-Thon. “We are delighted to partner with Euphoria Salon each year,” states Ann Harris, Co-Founder of the BCEA and a survivor herself. “Stevie and the other stylists are incredible to work with, and every year they make the Cut-a-Thon bigger and better.” This year, in addition to offering 20% off all products, Euphoria plans on holding a fun, silent auction and will have music from DJ80’s in the parking lot throughout the day.
