Cuts for Cancer will be on February 3rd!

Join us at the Chop Shop - 707 9 Hwy. S, Drumheller
Cuts 4 Cancer, an annual fundraiser, will be taking place again on February 3rd this year.  Volunteers willing to part with their hair and beards will be raising money for the Drumheller Area Health Foundation in support of the Community Cancer Clinic and the Palliative Care unit of the Drumheller Health Centre.

This will be the eighth year Cuts 4 Cancer has run. Over the years, the fundraiser has raised thousands of dollars to help the Drumheller Area Health Foundation. All of the money raised stays in town to treat Drumheller patients.

Cathy Morse started the event after the passing of her mother, Rose Schinnour, from cancer.
On February 3, 2013, the cost of each haircut at The Chop Shop will be donated to the Drumheller Area Health Foundation. However, each year there are a few who go further and place a bounty on their hair. These brave souls collect pledges and then go under the razor for a complete shave.  Participants who raise over $250 for Cuts 4 Cancer this year will automatically be entered to win a trip to Las Vegas.

Anyone wishing to volunteer their manes can contact Cathy Morse at The Chop Shop, 403-823-2466. Pledge forms can be picked up from The Chop Shop on Highway 9 South. Please join us in support of this worthwhile cause!
