Haircuts with Heart - For the locals

I'm super excited to tell y'all about an awesome fundraiser my sister, Jessi, has planned for the 2011 Heart Walk! For those who don't know, she's a pretty incredible hair stylist.  She's been cutting my hair for a long time now, minus her brief stay out west, and I've always loved what she does.  I'm actually going to see her this afternoon to let her work her magic on this mess of hair.

What can I say? Mama needs some pampering.

She works for a great company, Aveda, and they're all about botanically-based products, which are great for your hair/skin AND the environment.  They (at least her salon) are also very involved in raising money for community events.  Just recently, they held a hair-cutting event for our local SPCA and, on September 11th, they will be at it again, but this time raising money for the 2011 Triangle Heart Walk!

Jessi will be located at the Aveda store (not salon) in Crabtree Valley Mall on Sunday, September 11 from 12:00 p.m - 7:00 p.m.  The store is located on the 1st floor, near Sears.  For a suggested donation of $30, you will receive a dry haircut, with styling tips and Aveda product suggestions.  Every single penny raised from this cut-a-thon will go directly to Team Ethan.  100%, y'all!

How's that for a win-win?

(Tips are much appreciated and will stay with Jessi.)

If you live locally, and you would like to participate, you can see all the nitty-gritty details on the Facebook invitation page.  Even if you accept the Facebook invitation, be sure to call the Aveda store to set up your actual appointment.  The phone number is listed on the invitation, as well as Jessi's e-mail address should you have any questions.

*For those of you who may not use Facebook (congrats!) use the "Contact Us" link on the left-hand side of the blog to shoot me an e-mail.  I'll reply with all the info you'll need!

The event is open to anyone and everyone, so feel free to pass along the information if you know someone who may be interested.  I would encourage you to set up an appointment, though, as the mall tends to be pretty busy on Sunday afternoons!

I'm so proud of Jessi for using her talents to benefit her community, and specifically to raise money for an organization that is so dear to all of our hearts.  Hope to see y'all there!

Hi Joye - this is awesome. We are not sure if we will be in the area that day or not. Children's cardiology is having an event in DC that day and we are considering driving up for that. If we don't, I will certainly do this. I need an haircut but more importantly I would love to help 'Team Ethan.'
