Salon hosts blow-dry event to raise money for camp serving kids with cancer


Salon O in Greenwich, Conn., will host a “blow-dry” fundraising event from 10 a.m.  to 3 p.m. on Jan. 27  with all the proceeds to benefit Sunrise Day Camp at Pearl River.

Sunrise Day Camp is a summer day camp dedicated to children with cancer and their siblings.  Attendance at the camp is fee of charge. Located on 95 acres in the Henry Kaufman Campgrounds in Pearl River, Sunrise Day Camp and its partner camp, Sunrise Day Camp Long Island, located in Wheatley Heights, are the only full summer camps in the country dedicated to children with cancer, according to a press release from the JCC of Northern Westchester.

“Love your hair, Show you care” captures the sentiments of the staff and owners of Salon O, according to salon general manager, Courtney Doros.  Ten of Salon O’s hair stylists have dedicated their day off in order to ensure the success of this event.  Crush Wine Bar will be providing hor d’oeuvres and beverages.  The salon is located at 239 Mill Street in Greenwich.

“One of our customers told us about Sunrise Day Camp and we were so humbled hearing about it,” said Omar Roth, one of the salon’s owners. “We wanted to do something to lend our support and raise the money needed to send children with cancer in our area to this camp. ”
