For its grand opening, Moxie Salon of Oakhurst will host a Cut-A-Thon event to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Oakhurst, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. this Saturday at 40879 Highway 41, in the Silver Creek Center.
Business owner and stylist, Stephenie Jewett along with stylists Carrie Diffey, Michelle Eads, Martin Arce and Cheri Roderick wanted to have a grand opening with meaning and chose the Boys & Girls Club as an organization that they would like to help.
Each stylist will be participating by donating their time. Haircuts will be $15 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the club.
"It's a great opportunity for the kids to get a haircut, or maybe a quick trim for you while supporting a good cause," said Melanie Barker, club board president.
While the business is hosting this as a grand opening, each of the stylists have years of experience and are known throughout the Mountain Area. This event is their way of giving back to the children of the community and the club.
"My hope is that the public becomes aware of the need to have a safe environment for our children and with their generosity we can all make a difference," Jewett said.
The Boys & Girls Club of Oakhurst is a non-profit youth development organization dedicated to promoting the educational, vocational, health leadership and character of boys and girls in a safe, nurturing environment. The Club provides more than a safe, fun and constructive alternative to being home alone they offer a variety of award-winning developmental programs to help youth build skills, self-esteem and values during critical periods of growth.
"The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Oakhurst is to inspire and assist all young people, especially those who need us the most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens," Barker.
