Local Salon Donates Record Amount of Wigs

Salon Ten 17 recently donated 18 wigs to Cancer Navigators. This is the largest donation of wigs to the organization. “Our patients are going to be ecstatic about these beautiful wigs,” said Cancer Navigators Community Outreach Manager Scharla Battle.

Each October, cosmetologists at the salon have a special “ Wig Out” fundraiser to purchase wigs for cancer patients by donating their time and services for a raffle that they plan and execute. Funds raised from the raffle are used to purchase new wigs for cancer patients.

In addition, the staff routinely donates their services to update the styles of other wigs donated to Cancer Navigators.

    I think that is a wonderful donation from them. Is there a need for head dress wear for those who can’t deal with the tightness of a wig? I do some sewing on the side and have patterns for hats and head scarves.

    We would love for you to donate some hats and head scarves. The ladies love them especially in the cold months. Donations can be dropped by our office between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
    Thank you!
