Cut Your Hair For Cancer Fight: Pechanga, Temecula Stylists Offer Deal
Are you looking for a way to make a difference in the fight against cancer? Well, Pechanga Resort Casino and Spa Pechanga have a special opportunity for you. They are hosting the annual Mane Campaign, where you can donate your hair to be made into wigs for cancer patients in need. And the best part? Donors receive free cuts and styles! Let’s dive into the details of this fantastic event.
The Mane Campaign is a charitable event hosted by Pechanga Resort Casino and Spa Pechanga. It runs throughout the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this time, Pechanga collects hair donations from generous individuals like yourself to create wigs for cancer patients. The event has been running for nine years, and it has been a tremendous success, with nearly 600 ponytails collected in previous campaigns.
Hair Donations for Wigs
When you donate your hair, it will be used to create real-hair wigs, which will be given free of charge to cancer patients in need. All hair donations go to the Hair We Share organization, which provides wigs to eligible individuals with medical hair loss conditions. By donating your hair, you can help bring back confidence and joy to those battling cancer.
To donate your hair, you can make an appointment for a haircut donation at Spa Pechanga. Appointments are available on Mondays and Tuesdays between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. in October. The limited slots are expected to fill up quickly, so be sure to book your appointment early. To make an appointment, simply call (951) 770-8501.
Several salons are participating in the Mane Campaign, including Spa Pechanga, Hair We Share, Paul Mitchell The School Temecula, and Smith Hair Salon. These salons have come together to support this worthy cause and make a difference in the lives of cancer patients.
Hair Donation Process
When you arrive at Spa Pechanga for your appointment, your hair will be measured and cut by cosmetology students from Paul Mitchell The School Temecula. The hair cutting process is supervised by expert instructors to ensure the highest quality. As a donor, you will receive a voucher for a free haircut and style at Smith Hair Salon. The Mane Campaign encourages men, women, and children to donate at least eight inches of naturally colored hair, so make sure your hair meets these criteria.
Acceptance of Gray Hair
In an update for this year’s event, gray hair is now accepted for donation. This expansion of eligibility criteria allows more individuals to participate and contribute to this worthy cause. So, whether your hair is gray, brown, black, or any other color, you can make a difference.
Incentives for Hair Donors
As a thank you for your donation, Pechanga Resort Casino has some fantastic incentives for hair donors. You will receive a $50 credit toward treatments or retail items at Spa Pechanga. Additionally, Pechanga will make a $50 contribution to Hair We Share on behalf of each hair donor. And as if that wasn’t enough, every donor will be entered to win a Pechanga Getaway package, which includes a luxury hotel stay, Spa Pechanga day passes, and a food and beverage credit.
Previous Success of the Mane Campaign
The Mane Campaign has been running for nine years, and it has made a significant impact in the fight against cancer. Over the years, nearly 600 ponytails have been collected, and these have been used to make real-hair wigs for cancer patients. It takes about five to six ponytails to create one wig, so the donations from previous campaigns have helped provide wigs to many individuals in need.
Pechanga’s Support for Breast Cancer Awareness
Pechanga Resort Casino has been a major supporter of breast cancer awareness for over a decade. They have donated over $835,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in their region. This organization plays a crucial role in raising awareness about breast cancer and funding research to find a cure. By participating in the Mane Campaign, you are joining Pechanga in their commitment to fighting breast cancer and bringing hope to those who need it most.
Impact of Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women. It affects one in eight women, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Every year, more than 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and over 40,000 women lose their lives to this disease. Hair loss is a common side effect of cancer treatment, and it can be a traumatic experience for those fighting cancer. By donating your hair, you can help alleviate some of the emotional burden and make a difference in the lives of cancer patients.
In conclusion, the Mane Campaign is not just about cutting your hair; it is about cutting through the challenges that cancer patients face every day. By donating your hair, you can help provide wigs and bring back smiles to those in need. Make a difference this October by joining Pechanga Resort Casino and Spa Pechanga in the fight against cancer. Call (951) 770-8501 to book your appointment and be a part of this incredible event. Together, we can make a difference!
