Blood in my Hairspray Comedy to Benefit Aids Coalition

The Tri County Aids Coalition, in Canton, Ohio was formed by a group of friends in 1983 concerned that so many of their friends were coming down with HIV-AIDS and then dying.

The group, now in its 17th year of operation finds itself dealing more with supplying the much needed day to day items people living with HIV require. Some individuals are unable to work and live on government assistance such as food stamps, subsidized housing and so on. The Coalition supplies them with their personal hygiene products such as toilet tissue, shampoo, deodorant, bar soap, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, paper towels and more.  They also help those infected with food vouchers during the holiday seasons. 

To date, The Tri County Aids Coalition has raised more than $100,000.00 for the local community. There are no paid personnel, everyone donates their time. The Tri County Aids Coalition is still made up of friends who enjoy working with the HIV community by doing fundraisers such as a January event called “An Evening of Entertainment and Illusion”.

This year’s event “Blood in my Hairspray” is a twisted hilarious comedy, in a Dinner/Murder Mystery Theatre Experience, with manners full of passion, pathos and faaaaabulous hair. The Tri County Aids Coalition would like to encourage beauty shops, salons, and spas to participate by purchasing tickets for the Friday, January 28, 2011 show at $35.00 per ticket.

"Our goal is to have people come in Avant-garde hair. We actually are also encouraging our beauty salon guests to enter our best hair contest", notes volunteer Tim Rypien of Rialto Hair in Canton, Ohio. A prize will be awarded that night during the finale of the show.  Proceeds of this years show will benefit local HIV needs in the community.  

For tickets and/or information, Please call President Bill Weaver at 330-477-0806.  Full Tables of 10 will be given preferred seating.  Full tables may be purchased for $350.00
