Cayman: Eclipze 19th Annual Cut-A-Thon for Breast Cancer Awareness

We are very pleased to announce that Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa will be hosting our 19th Annual Cut-A-Thon for Breast Cancer awareness on Sunday October 20th, 2019!

The Annual Cut-a-thon primary aims are to continue to raise awareness of Breast Cancer in the Cayman Islands. Darla the owner of EHD&DS and her sister Darna (a partner at the time) established this event in loving memory of an aunt who suffered in silence and passed away to Breast Cancer 20 plus years ago. After exploring different ways to make this possible they decided to use their profession of Cosmetology (Hair & Beauty) in creating a fun and rewarding event for the community to benefit from. Other Salon and Spa professionals were invited to participate and so beganEclipze Hair Design & Day Spa Annual Cut-A-Thon. The funds generated annually from this event are given to The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens. They use the funds to help persons who are unable to help themselves financially.

As a committed company to this cause, they are asking for other companies and members of the community to join them in the fight against Breast Cancer in the Cayman Islands.

Maybe you can get your company more involved by doing a dress down day and help them raise funds this way?
To help raise additional funds they are also looking for volunteers who would be willing to cut off at least 10” to 12” off their hair or shave their head to help them raise funds this way!  Each of these wonderful volunteers will be trying to raise a minimum of $1000 towards their cuts.Their hair can then be donated to Locks of Love / Children with hair loss, if they wish to help in making wigs for children in need!

PLEASE help sponsor them to reach these goals!

If your organization or anyone at it is interested, please ask them to contact Darla or Eileen directly at [email protected] or 945-1188 and we will give them all the details.

We are also encouraging other volunteers to come and join us. Sign up early and help to brighten someone’s day!

The past years have been a huge success thanks to Volunteers & Sponsors, and they hope to make this year’s event just as successful with your help.

Donations can be made directly to Account numbers – KYD – 01248649 or USD 02230883, given to the sponsored volunteers directly or brought to Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa before or on the day of the Cut-A-Thon.

All proceeds raised are donated to The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens Breast Cancer Awareness Fund to help in providing education on early detection & mammograms etc. for men and women who are otherwise unable to afford them.

The 19th Annual Cut-A-Thon for Breast Cancer Awareness Fund will be hosted at Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa located at SUITE 6103D, 10 MARKET STREET, CAMANA BAY on Sunday 20th October from 2pm to 6pm.
