Bella Donna Salon in Osage Beach recently donated $1,138 to Lake Regional Cancer Center’s HOPE Program, which provides supportive assistance for cancer patients.
In October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the salon hosted a cut-a-thon, donating 100 percent of the one-day event’s profits. Also throughout the month, Bella Donna stylists sold pink hair extensions and pink paraffin hand treatments with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Lake Regional.
With the help of other community businesses, Bella Donna Salon also hosted a raffle with four prize packages. The prizes included donations from Bentley’s, Walmart, J. Bruner’s and Mike Harrington.
Bella Donna’s donation was nearly double the amount the salon raised in 2012 through similar activities.
“We appreciate the efforts of Bella Donna staff and customers who made this donation possible,” said Terri Hall, director of Fund Development at Lake Regional. “Their contributions and those from other area businesses will allow us to assist cancer patients with expenses, such as nutritional supplements or transportation to and from treatments.”
