BrainUp Cut-a-Thon

BrainUp along with the Jeffrey LaMorte Salons of Frankfort, Orland Park, Lemont and Salon Evangelos of Orland Park teamed up on March 19, 2017 for its second Cut-a-Thon to support BrainUp’s mission to fund brain cancer research programs at Chicago hospitals.

Between the 4 salons, over 250 haircuts were done that afternoon along with each salon hosting raffles supported by local community businesses. The event raised in total $11,200!

BrainUp had the support of families and friends that have been touched by this disease to make this event such a success, along with the Salon Owners, Jeffrey LaMorte of Frankfort and Orland Jason LaMorte of Lemont and Vance Theodore Owner of Salon Evangelos.

If you are interested in hosting a Cut-a-Thon fundraiser at your local salon to help raise money for brain cancer the BrainUp team will be glad to share and support how to get this done.

The returns you get from this day are beyond financial, it is the well wishes and support that make this day so special.
