The Hair Studio Cut A Thon To Benefit Junior League of Berkshire County

Proceeds to Benefit Junior League’s Literacy Programs in Area Schools

For immediate release

Pittsfield, Massachusetts – In an effort to improve literacy in Pittsfield school aged children, The Hair Studio is sponsoring a Cut-A-Thon Sunday May 5th from Noon to 4pm at  their salon on 10 Bank Row, downtown Pittsfield MA, in support of the Junior League of Berkshire County’s ‘Curl Up With A Good Book’ program.

Anyone 12 or older who donates $20 to the Junior League of Berkshire County during the Cut-A-Thon will receive a free haircut from the stylists at The Hair Studio.  Haircuts include a consult, wash, cut and blow dry and no appointment is necessary.  “I think what the Junior League is doing to help our school kids is just great, we all do”, said owner Frank Napolitano.  He continued to say “we don’t normally work Sundays but all of my stylists were happy to volunteer their time because it’s such a great cause”.

The JLBC visits elementary schools in Berkshire County in an effort to promote literacy to children and their families.  This will mark the 8th year that the Junior League has read aloud to children, led discussions about the books and then distributed those books to local schoolchildren.
