Salon offers cut-price-cuts for cancer fight

| 09/10/2014 | 0 Comments

(CNS): A local hair salon and day spa will be hosting a Cut-A-Thon on Sunday 26 October to help raise cash during breast cancer awareness month. Volunteers from Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa, Artista, La Mer, Focus, Renaissance, Spa Esprit, and The Salon will offer services such as wet cuts, mini manicures and eyebrow threading to the public at a huge savings, as well as $1 per minute massages. This is the14th year since sisters Darla and Darna, owners of Eclipze at the time, lost an aunt to cancer and wanted to help in the fight against it.

Last year the event raised $8,000 which was donated to the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens, who organise the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund for free mammograms.

Amy Bothwell, Tyra Walton, Angela Pretorius, Jacqui Farrington & Blanca Welds from the Lions Club will cut 10 inches off their hair and Kevin Gryzbouski, Mark Ebanks and Kevin Morales of Cayman 27 will shave their heads in support of this worthy cause.

Each of these volunteers is trying to raise a minimum of $1000 for their cuts. Donations can be given to the volunteers directly or brought to Eclipze before or on the day of the Cut-A-Thon.

The event will take place at Eclipze Hair Salon & Day Spa at 10 Market Street, Camana Bay from 2pm to 6pm. For more information e-mail or call ASMA / DARLA at 945-1188 OR 916-7274.

Moon halo captured by CNS reader

(CNS): Wednesday’s full moon was captured with a splendid halo around it last night by a CNS reader. These types of lunar rings are caused by high-level cirrus clouds or ice crystals reflecting moonlight in the sky. Said to predict storms or bad weather, according to the US weather service, almost 65% of such moon rings are followed by rain. The halos happens when moonlight is refracted through ice particles in the Earth's atmosphere. As light passes through these hexagon-shaped ice crystals, it is bent at a 22 degree angle, creating a halo 22 degrees in radius. (Photo by Trudyann Duncan)
