Salon offers discounted Cuts for a Cause
CENTER CITY - April 11, 2013 (WPVI) -- Usually, a cut and blow dry at Giovanni and Pileggi salon costs $80. Add highlights, and you'll pay about $160.
But this Sunday, the stylists at Giovanni and Pileggi are coming in on their day off and providing those services for half-price. All to benefit a worthy cause.
Salon owner Giovanni Mele explains, "For me, and my staff, we just like to give back to people. Everybody's always in need of something. So I would like to participate and give something back."
The salon is donating 50% of what they take in during Sunday's Cuts for a Cause fund-raiser to the Gift of Life Donor Program.
"We are the organ and tissue donor program for the eastern half of Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware," explains Jan Weinstock of Gift of Life. "So, for the last close to 40 years, we have coordinated all of the life-saving organ and tissue donation for transplantation in this region."
Weinstock says the organization will use the money to help fund education programs at area high schools and houses of worship, about the importance of organ and tissue donation.
She adds, "We think that these two types of venues are really important places for people to be able to have dialogue about why organ and tissue donation is important, and to understand the facts about organ and tissue donation."
You will need to make an appointment to take advantage of the discounted hair-styling deals. You can call the salon at 215-568-3040.
