Salon hosts fundraiser for kids with cancer

In an effort to support families battling childhood cancer, Mane Attraction Salon, 3156 E. Camelback Road, hosts a fundraiser at its store from Sept. 8 through Oct. 29, with proceeds benefitting Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels and its Comfycozy Care Bags.

Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels is a nonprofit organization that celebrates the life of North Central resident Amanda Hope, who passed away after she lost her battle with leukemia. Amanda’s dream was to have her own stylish and comfortable clothing line for children battling cancer.

The Comfycozy Care Bags are bright, washable backpacks that contain tie-dyed Comfycozy’s T-Shirts designed with zippers, pockets and holes allowing healthcare professionals access to a child’s ports and tubes while the child’s body remains covered. This gift package also includes educational material for the family, supportive material about community resources and other “fun stuff” just for the child.

The fundraiser will include a raffle for $10 for a free haircut from each stylist, $5 raffle tickets for a Bumble & Bumble gift basket valued at more than $250 and the option to sponsor a child for $30. There also will be a collection bin inside the store for new, unwrapped toys.
