Cut-A-Thon in memory of Amanda Connors

Posted: Updated:

A Cut-A-Thon will be held in Memory of Amanda Connors on Monday at Cost Cutters Salon in Sioux Falls.

For a minimum donation of $10, guests will receive haircuts from some of the top hairstylists in the area at the Cost Cutters Salon at 2701 W. 41st Street in Sioux Falls. The Cut-A-Thon will be held in the memory of Cost Cutters Manager Amanda Connors, who was gunned down in front of the salon by a co-worker's boyfriend back in September.

Organizers say in an effort to turn this tragedy into an opportunity, all proceeds from the Cut-A-Thon will go to a cosmetology school scholarship that is being established in Amanda's honor at the Stewart School of Cosmetology. This scholarship will go toward a student interested in pursuing the profession that Connors loved.

The event is being held at Cost Cutters Salon in partnership with MATRIX Chairs of Change. Organizers say Chairs of Change is an ongoing initiative launched by Matrix in January 2011, that empowers, inspires, and rewards hairstylists who are making an impact on their own lives, their communities, and in the world.

The event is being held Monday December 3rd from 10:00am until 4:00pm.
