A Hair MassAcure Fundraiser

Kamloops BC V2C 5K9
Doors and Cocktails at 6:30pm Dinner at 7:30pm Event runs until midnight
Hair MassAcure is a fundraising event for ChemoKidsWigs in support of Wigs For Kids BC - a not-for-profit organization run out of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation in Vancouver BC. This fundraiser is held about every 2 years and this year’s Gala Dinner event will be the 4th fundraiser.
This year it will be held on April 11, 2020 at The Colombo Lodge Hall in Kamloops, B.C. – also known as the Italian Cultural Centre. Entertainment will be provided by two local bands throughout the evening. An open mic / guitar / bass / drums will be available for anyone who wishes to participate in the entertainment during the evening.
As a Business or Group supporter, we are asking you for a $1000.00 donation. In return, you will receive tickets for a table of 10 people. This includes the cost of dinner and any taxes. At the “Table Donator level”, we are asking that you supply a picture of someone (or several people) that you would like to acknowledge as recently departed or, even better, survivors that you know of who went through Chemotherapy or other treatments that may have caused their hair loss, regardless of their age.
We currently have 29 heads of hair donated to this point and are adding new donors continually.
A message from Paul Cuthbert, the Head Fundraiser: “This has been a heartfelt purpose for me since I was very young. (You will hear my full story at the event.) The first time I grew my hair long with the intention of cutting my hair off for the “Locks of Love Foundation” was in the summer of 1978. Since then, I have been growing my hair and donating it to “Locks of Love” based out of California. About 2 years ago I found out that the “Locks of Love Foundation” has since closed. This required my looking for a new benefactor for our fundraiser. Being closer to home and my heart, I do believe we found the right fit for me and our group to endorse. This will be my 20th time cutting my hair for ChemoKidsWigs. This has been a labour of love for me and our supporters over the years. I know we all would be thrilled to have you all as supporters of our Fundraiser.”
Table Seating: Each table has seating for 10. - $100 per individual seat - $1000 for a full table (Please call the Kamloops Live! Box Office for booking full tables and for more details)
