Ishpeming Haircut Fundraiser

If you need to get a haircut soon, an Ishpeming salon is giving you the chance to get one at a discount tomorrow while helping an area family.

9–year–old Griffin Helsten of Ishpeming needs a heart transplant.

Main Street School of Cosmetology is hosting a fundraiser for him.

It’s offering $10 haircuts from 10 to 3 tomorrow, with all the proceeds going to his family.

Rebecca Harris, one of the instructors at the school, says you can just walk in for a haircut if you like.

She also says they’ll do anything they can to raise money for Griffin, including manicures, massages and photos with Santa.

Harris works at the school with Griffin’s aunt, and that’s how the idea started.

There’s also an account in Griffin’s name at Peninsula Bank for anyone who might like to donate.
