Glitz and Glamour holding second Cuts for CASA event
Nov 03, 2012 4:50 pm
Need a haircut? Why not get a trim and benefit a good cause at the same time? Enter Cuts for CASA.
Glitz and Glamour Hair Salon is once again holding a fundraiser to benefit the Court Appointed Special Advocates. The fundraiser will run from Monday through Nov. 10 at the hair salon.
All during the week, half of all proceeds from haircuts will be donated to Wilson County CASA.
“We are thrilled to partner with Glitz and Glamour in this effort,” said Laura Swanson, Executive Director of Wilson County CASA. “It’s an opportunity for a feel good day. Get a great haircut and support a great cause at the same time.”
Glitz and Glamour stylist Jessica Dodd was the woman behind the fundraiser, as she created the idea to honor her father.
“My dad and hero, Bill Dodds, has been involved with CASA for what seems like my whole life. The CASA logo is one that I am very familiar after all these years, having seen it on so many items, from pins to t-shirts,” Dodds said. “As an adult, I thought, ‘What can I do to set a good example for my daughter, and hopefully, one day be a hero to her the way my dad has always been to me?’ I came up with Cuts for CASA, because CASA gives a voice to neglected and abused children, and this is my way to help people understand what a great organization it is and to become a voice.”
A local sheriff's deputy will be in on the fundraiser this year due to losing a "bet" of sorts. Kent Beasley will sit in the stylist's chair Thursday to have his head shaved for the cause.
"I was born with a lot of hair, and have had a lot of hair all my life," said Beasley. "I was talking with another deputy; this was probably in June. He told me he was gonna grow his hair out. I told him if he did that then I was gonna shave my head. "He's grown his hair out, and now I have to shave mine."
Beasley said if he had to lose his hair because he lost the bet, he is happy the money is going to a cause of which he is passionate.
"I work alongside CASA, and I see all the good work they do. If i have to suffer through the indignity of a shaved head, then the money raised will all be going to a great cause."
