50 Haircuts in 50 States in 50 Days: Get clipped for a great cause
Need a haircut? Love animals? Consider being a part of history on August 30 when a Wichita, Kansas hairstylist makes his Twin Cities stop during his national hair-cut-a-thon.
Master stylist Patrick Lomantini has a passion for animals and with scissors in hand, he’ll be tackling an ambitious goal. Lomantini hopes to set a world record by completing 50 haircuts in 50 states in 50 days. All haircuts will be free, however a suggested donation of at least $20 is recommended. That money will go to a local humane society in each state with the Minnesota stop supporting Animal Humane Society.
With the community's support, Patrick hopes to raise at least $1,000 for Animal Humane Society. As an independent non-profit charity, Animal Humane Society depends on the generosity of the community to support the many programs and services at its five metro locations in Buffalo, Coon Rapids, Golden Valley, St. Paul and Woodbury.
Jungle Red Salon in Minneapolis will be hosting Lomantini during his day-long cutting extravaganza. Make an appointment now to be a part of history and help animals in our community.
Call the salon at (612) 870-0653 to be one of the lucky 50 people included in this world record setting event. It’s expected to take 12 hours for Lomantini to complete his Twin Cities haircutting mission with appointments beginning at 9AM and the last cut at 9PM.
Lomantini set a Guinness World Record for cutting hair for 72 straight hours in 2010. He finished 227 haircuts and raised $1625 which he donated to the Kansas Humane Society.
Staff and volunteers from Animal Humane Society will be on hand to help cheer on Lomantini and support the team at Jungle Red Salon located at 1362 LaSalle Avenue, Minneapolis, MN.
