Salon targets cancer

 | 

By Kevin Eagan

CLEMMONS, N.C. – As the owner of Hair 6000 in Clemmons, Cheryl Lambert’s job is to make people look good.

Now, she aims to use her professional skills to do good.

Hair  6000 has teamed up with Callicutt Studio in Winston-Salem to sponsor a haircut-a-thon, bake sale and rummage sale on April 12 to benefit Cancer Services in Winston-Salem, a nonprofit that serves cancer patients in Davie, Forsyth, Stokes and Yadkin counties.

“All of us at Hair 6000 have lost clients to cancer and have clients who have lost and are losing friends and family to the disease,” Lambert says.

Lambert and her staff selected Cancer Services, an agency of United Way of Forsyth County, because it works directly with patients and their families and addresses the needs of all cancer patients.

“We were told repeatedly of the tremendous support cancer survivors have received from Cancer Services,” Lambert says.

Eddie Callicutt, who owns Callicutt Studio and formerly worked at Hair 6000, is co-sponsoring the event.

Because the benefit is the first that Lambert and her company have undertaken, their only goal is to raise as much money as possible.

The haircut-a-thon will take place at Hair 6000, with Lambert and her staff cutting hair for donations.

Hair 6000 also will hold a bake sale and rummage sale in the parking lot of Meadowbrook Mall to help raise more money.

Lambert welcomes donations of items to the bake sale and rummage sale.
