Salon to host Spa-A-Thon benefit
Bad Hair Day? Salon/Spa will be hosting its 6th annual Spa-A-Thon on Sunday, Oct. 6, from noon until 5 p.m. which will include activities in the northwest parking lot behind the salon, which is located at 109 W. Chicago Blvd., Tecumseh.
This year, proceeds from the event will be donated to a local family that has been facing several struggles.
The Kasiks’ daughter, Lora, who works at Basil Boys, has been battling Leiomyosarcoma cancer. The mother, Adrienne, battles the effects of Lyme disease, which has put her on the sidelines from volunteering time with the Tecumseh Public Schools. The father, Taft, is suffering from injuries sustained in a car accident.
“The family seems to be very well liked in the community,” said Lisa Carr, owner of Bad Hair Day? Salon/Spa.
Carr said the staff put together the first Spa-A-Thon to help a friend, Carl Hamilton, with financial expenses that had accumulated through is battle with cancer.
“It was a success and we all really enjoyed the event, and being able to help someone, so we decided to make it an annual event,” said Carr. They look for potential people to help on Facebook and through guests nominating candidates, Carr said, and then the staff members vote on who the recipient will be in a given year.
“In the past, this event has allowed us to be able to provide thousands of dollars to several local cancer victims as well as provide significant funds to the nonprofit group Children with Hair Loss,” said Carr. Event proceeds have also assisted Tecumseh High School Band.
During the event, staff members will offer regular salon/spa services such as hair and nail services, as well as a silent auction, bake sale, 50/50 drawing, live entertainment, hot dogs and beverages, as well as a bounce house and face painting.
Donations of merchandise, gift certificates or monetary donations are still being sought for the event and are tax-deductible. For more information, call 423.4511.
