Amity Middle School in Orange hosted its 10th annual “Giving Hair and Hope” event. Over $18,000 was raised for the St Baldrick’s Foundation for Pediatric Cancer Research and Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
Teachers, staff, students, community, and family members packed the gym to make this event a huge success. Area barbers and hairstylists donated their time to shave heads and cut pony tails of over 50 participants. Entertainment was provided by Mulkerins’ Irish Dance Studio. “This is what I love most about hosting this event. It gives our students the opportunity to help others,” said Vicki Fielosh, teacher and event coordinator.
