staff report • Mar 27, 2013 at 8:38 AM

Geneses and Todd’s Hair Studio in Wise, Va., will hold their third annual Cut-A-Thon from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, March 30, at the salons at 202 Norton Road, Wise, Va.

Stylists will cut hair for a $30 donation for women and a $20 donation for men and children younger than 12.

Proceeds will go to the Food Bank of Wise County. In addition to the funds raised from haircuts, proceeds will be generated from a raffle for free haircuts for one year from each salon, and from a silent auction. Auction items have been donated by local businesses and individuals. Raffle tickets will be sold all day.

The Food Bank of Wise County has provided food assistance to the residents of Wise County and the city of Norton for 26 years. On average, the food bank serves more than 600 families per month out of its two distribution centers on Esserville Road in Norton and on Wood Avenue in Big Stone Gap.

Previous beneficiaries of the Cut-A-Thon were Family Crisis Support Services, which received $10,000 in 2011, and the Southwest Virginia Cancer Center Patient Care Fund, which received $13,100 in 2012.

To make an appointment for the Cut-A-Thon call (276) 328-2875 or (276) 328-1401. Walk-ins are welcome.
