Ware, MA (February 21, 2014) - On Saturday, March 1, Debbie Rozzen, owner of Silhouettes Salon and her dedicated staff will donate their earnings and tips that day for all haircuts and manicures to raise funds for the Walk of Champions. Silhouettes Cut-A-Thon will feature $15 Haircuts and Manicures with no appointments necessary from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the salon located at 164 B West Street, Ware. “We are proud to support such a great cause that helps so many people in our community,” said Rozzen who has been in business locally for 20 years and is well known and respected as a talented stylist and business owner in Ware.
Debbie continues her support and commitment for patients undergoing cancer treatments at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital with her involvement in the Walk of Champions and she is also a specially trained cosmetologist who facilitates our Look Good…Feel Better classes held at the hospital,” said Lori Tuttle, RN, Program Manager of the Baystate Regional Cancer Program at BMLH. During the programs sponsored by the American Cancer Society and the National Cosmetology Association, Rozzen shares makeup techniques to help women overcome the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
All proceeds of the Cut-a-thon will support “Team Silhouettes” fundraising efforts as they join hundreds of walkers in the 9th Annual Walk of Champions held at the Goodnough Dike area of the Quabbin Reservoir to be held on Sunday, May 4, beginning at 10 a.m. In 2013 more than 1,200 walkers raised over $91,000 in an extraordinary show of support for friends, family members and neighbors who have been touched by cancer.
