)-- Douglas David, managing partner of Douglas Carroll Salon (http://www.douglascarrollsalon.com/), a nationally and internationally recognized salon in Raleigh, has announced that the salon will host its second annual “Care Cut Give” Cut-A-Thon on Sunday, Sept. 22 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society in honor of Eileen Homsher, a beloved Douglas Carroll Salon team member who lost her battle to cancer last year. During the event, the salon will offer its top-quality haircuts for only $35, which normally start at $50.
In addition to donating to the American Cancer Society, the salon will be collecting donations for Homsher’s children’s college fund. Homsher left behind two sons, Stephen and Ryan, who will be participating in the Cut-A-Thon.
Walk-in appointments will be accepted during the event, but supporters are encouraged to schedule an appointment by calling the salon at (919) 876-5411 or by visiting its website at http://www.douglascarrollsalon.com/.
“We started our ‘Care Cut Give’ Cut-A-Thon to help our cherished colleague, Eileen Homsher, with payment of her medical expenses as she battled the effects of blood cancer,” said David. “Sadly, she lost her battle, but we have chosen to continue to support her efforts through the Cut-A-Thon by helping her two sons with their college tuition and raising funds in her memory to help others fighting cancer by donating proceeds to the American Cancer Society.”
