Cut-A-Thon '07 to benefit Hospice of Washington County, Inc.

Hagerstown, MD (October 2007)- SexyHair and Professional Beauty Supply in cooperation with tri-state area hair salons will be cutting for the benefit of Hospice of Washington County. November 8, 2007 has been designated as a day for participating salons to put their scissors into action in support of a good cause.
Participating salons include Advanced Hair Design in Cumberland, MD, Hott Topix in Hagerstown, MD, MT Clifton Hair Design & Pam's Family Hair Care, both in Hedgesville, WV, Simplicity Hair Salon in Charlestown, WV, and Visions Hair & Tanning in Martinsburg, WV.
Hospice of Washington County provides patients and their families with the medications, services and equipment necessary to live each day with life-limiting illness. Hospice care focuses on the patient, not the disease. For those enrolled in hospice care, they can experience health care in their own homes surrounded by family and friends all while receiving cutting edge pain and symptom management. The medical, emotional, and spiritual support system put into place through hospice care allows individuals and their families the opportunity of living better and often longer, than they would without the specialized care.
Katharine McPhee, former American Idol Superstar, is the current SexyHair Spokeswoman. SexyHair is distributed to local salons through Professional Beauty Supply in Baltimore, MD.
Professional Beauty Supply's tri-state representative, Jeanette Titone, has organized the fund raiser to help support others that may benefit from the services offered through Hospice of Washington County. Titone, whose father and brother received hospice care, wants to use the fundraiser to raise awareness so that others might access the services when they are in need, as well as raise money for those who may not have insurance.
Anyone wishing to participate in the Cut-a-Thon may contact any of the salons listed above to schedule a November 8 appointment. SexyHair and Professional Beauty Supply are proud to support community hospice programs that help men, women, and children of all ages experiencing a life-limiting illness.
