Fifteen employees from The Whole Show Restorations will be shaving their heads this Friday, Aug. 19.

The Shave Your Head fundraiser is Aug. 19 at The Whole Show Restorations (1360 Alberni Hwy., Parksville) at 1 p.m.

Two professional hair stylists — Emily Hollman of Emily’s Hair Affair and Mia Klassen —  will be donating their time to shave the employees’ heads.

The Whole Show Restorations started off the campaign by donating $400 toward its goal of $4,000. One employee is also doing a personal challenge by asking Facebook friends and family to donate. If she gets 150 friends and family to donate, she will shave her head.

Employee Michelle Schneider said there’s been some pretty generous donations. She added that companies and individual clients have been donating.

Schneider said that as a team, they wanted to give their support to those whose lives have been touched by cancer in some way.

“The defining moment was when one of our employees was talking with two other people, and found out all three of them were dealing with cancer in a major way in each of their lives,” Schneider said.

The store has a website through the Canadian Cancer Society for people to donate up until Aug. 19 and receive a tax receipt.
