logo_horizontalNovember 2, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) — A Cut-a-Thon to raise money for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County will be held Thursday, November 12, from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. at Lather Hair Salon off Glenwood Avenue North/Highway 70, Raleigh.

The money Lather raises will be used to help sponsor Habitat/Wake’s 2009 Holiday Home Tour & Party later in November.

“We want to show our support for Habitat/Wake’s on-going mission to

build good, affordable homes for low-income families who simply can’t qualify for traditional mortgages,” said Lather’s owner and senior stylist Jessica Williams. “The annual Homes Tour & Party are also fundraisers for Habitat/Wake. So by helping to sponsor that wonderful event – during which tour goers get to see a collection of homes Habitat has built – we can extend Lather’s donation beyond the money we raise during the cut-a-thon.”

From 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. on November 12, Lather will donate the usual payment for every hair cut done that day to Habitat/Wake. Lather’s hair cut prices are: women’s cuts $38-$50; men’s $22-$31; and children 10 and under $18-$26. (Stylists’ tips are not included.)

Complimentary beverages will be served during the Habitat/Wake Cut-a-Thon, and a donation box will be on hand so customers can donate even more if they want.

“The box will also be there for anyone who may not need a hair cut that day but still wants to donate,” Williams added.

Since 1985, Habitat for Humanity of Wake County has joined with individuals and local organizations to build simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with families living at modest income levels. Habitat for Humanity helps people build and buy their own homes by creating opportunity, not dependency.

“So we’re hoping lots of folks will decide to make their next hair cut count for more than just style and beauty,” Williams said. “By getting your hair cut at Lather that day, you’ll be supporting one of the best causes out there. We encourage everyone to remember the Habitat mission: ‘Building homes, building hope, building community.’ “

Lather will accept walk-ins and appointments for the Habitat Cut-a-Thon. To make an appointment, call 919-792-0715.
