The event began immediately after school, with dozens of students visiting the salon to show their support. Faculty members and members of the community visited the salon throughout the afternoon to have their hair cut or styled in exchange for a $10 donation for adults and a $5 donation for students.

In addition to having their hair cut or styled, attendees purchased raffle tickets for the chance to win generously donated gift baskets. Two of the gift baskets contained Paul Mitchell hair care products from HairLines in Shrewsbury. Other gift baskets were from Summer Scoops in Plainville and Hair Mania in Franklin.
The team of 4 women raised over $24,000.00 overall. All proceeds will go to the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Cancer Research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
