On Sunday, May 28, Tracy Rutter is putting together a special event "Kutting for a Kause" to benefit the charity Locks of Love and the Saint Baldrick's Foundation at the Irish Circle. Both organizations take donated hair and use it to make wigs for children with cancer.
The day of the event girls can donate their hair to Locks of Love and guys can donate to Saint Baldrick's. If you don't want to donate you can still come and help support both causes.
There will be live music from bands that include Whole in One, 3 AM, Dirty Mother Nation, Wine with Sue, SixthBoro, and Guten Flower.
There will be raffles for prizes, a 50/50 drawing and free giveaways from sponsors Budweiser and Coors Light. For more information you can email Tracy at Kutting4aKause@ yahoo.com or stop by the Irish Circle.
