Seattle salon raises money for breast cancer research

Lisa Power Salon organized a Cuts for a Cure event on Sunday, June 10 and raised $5382.88 for breast cancer research.

The seven-hour event was held at Lisa Power Salon, and team members donated their time to participate. Items were donated by local businesses and clients as part of the event. All money raised will be donated to support a local team participating in the upcoming Susan G. Komen Three-Day Walk for Breast Cancer. This is the fifth year in a row the Lisa Power Salon team has organized the event. To date, they have raised more than $25,000 for breast cancer research.

“This is an incredibly important event to the team at Lisa Power Salon. It’s a cause our clients really support, and it’s been our pleasure to host this fundraiser for a few years now. Having raised $5382.88 that will be used to help find a cure for this disease is very rewarding,” explained Owner Lisa Power.

The Puget Sound Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure was founded in 1992 by a group of community volunteers, all of whom shared a vision of ending breast cancer forever. Since its inception, the Puget Sound Affiliate has invested $23 million to fund local breast health education and outreach, access to mammogram screening, and treatment support in Western Washington and for scientific research to find the cure for breast cancer.
