The East Coast Salon, 2776 West Main St. Wappingers Falls, NY, raised $2500 for the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation during a cut-a-thon held at the salon.

“We have a few clients who have had breast cancer and we wanted to do something special for them as well as for this worthy local charity,” Sue Gasperini, owner of the salon said.

“We came up with the idea of a cut-a-thon along with pink hair extensions and the staff was very excited.”

Miles of Hope is a 501-c-3 public charity with a mission to fund support services for people affected by breast cancer in the eight counties of the Hudson Valley.

“When Sue called to say they had raised over $2000, we were so impressed!” stated Miles of Hope Executive Director Pari Forood. “Many salons in the Hudson Valley run promotions for us especially during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this year with 20 salons participating we received more donations than ever before in the foundation’s eight year history.”

Miles of Hope has given away more than one million dollars in eight years for support programs for people affected by breast cancer in the eight counties of the Hudson Valley.
