Streaks of pink painted the hair of nearly two dozen locals last Thursday, but it wasn’t for Halloween.
In order to celebrate October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, hair salon Sparrow For Hair hosted a Streaks for Cancer event, where clients could get a pink streak in their hair with all donations going to the cause.
“I think almost every single one of our clients got the pink streak,” owner and stylist Stacy Goldade said. “It was really great.”
The event was held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Goldade said they raised over $200 dollars, and had between 15 and 20 people streaking their hair pink.
The idea behind the fundraiser came from one of Goldade’s clients.
“She works really hard for them and thought that it would be a neat way to raise some money,” Goldade said, noting the project was put together last minute. “If we had a little bit more notice next year we can probably raise even a little more.”
