The 12th annual Cut for the Cure will take place Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at New Image Hair Salon, at 2522 Welsh Road (at Roosevelt Boulevard) in the Tremont Shopping Center.
Owner John McDonald and his staff will give haircuts to men, women and children for $15, with proceeds going to breast cancer research at Fox Chase Cancer Center, prostate cancer research at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and the Veterans Comfort House in West Philadelphia.
McDonald is a prostate cancer survivor, and his late wife, Ginny, battled breast cancer.
Customers can pay in cash or with a personal check or credit card.
The day’s activities will include individual and family portraits for $15. Food, hats and T-shirts will be for sale, and there will be raffles for a basket of cheer and a hand-crafted Longaberger basket.
In addition, there will be a disc jockey, classic cars, karate demonstrations and performances by a jump rope team and the Sounds of Liberty Barbershop Quartet.
Last year’s benefit raised almost $14,000.
