The organizers of Hair Donation Ottawa are calling this year’s fundraising event another big success, with donations closing in on $100,000 as of today. Money raised supports cancer research.
Helene Hutchings says the preliminary count is around $95,000-$97,000, and there are additional events planned over the coming month. They’ll announce a final total towards the end of May or early June.
The event is organized by Hutchings and Perry Pavlovic, two Stittsville-based real estate agents, along with lots of help from volunteers.
