Pink It Up!

 

October 24, 2019



October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to highlight the importance of breast cancer awareness, education and research. Local people can help raise awareness and funds by adding a hot pink extension or flash of color in their hair! Blush Salon on Main Street in Waitsburg offers a $2.50 tinsel dye application, and Four Feathered Sparrow and Bliss Salon in Walla Walla offer $10 hair extensions with all proceeds going to support Just Us Girls Sharing (JUGS). JUGS is a 501©3 nonprofit organization that strives to positively impact the local community through awareness, strength, courage and hope for a cure. The organization started as a small group of hairdressers who began selling pink hair extensions in an effort to raise money for local patients undergoing treatments for breast cancer. The organization also produces the annual Pink Ball in March, which is the organization’s main fundraiser and will be celebrating their 10th year. The event will take place on Saturday, March 7. Four Feathered Sparrow is located at 120 E. Birch in Walla Walla. Bliss Salon is located at 43 S. Palouse St. in Walla Walla. To donate directly to JUGS, visit http://just-us-girls-sharing.org/
