First off, I want to apologize for the small hiatus. Without further ado, here are all the things that happened in the month of October for HighlanderThon and Children's Specialized Hospitals!
In October, HighlanderThon was excited to hold our annual Headshaving "For the Kids" event on October 18th and MiniThon on October 25th!
In our head-shaving event, we challenged our dancers who were participating to make a fundraising goal by October 18th, and if they reached their goal, they would have to do something with their hair. Of our dancers that participated, some shaved all or parts of their hair while others died it different colors. In particular, one of our dancers, Cindy Lewis, beat her goal of $1,000 and raised $1,462!
We would like to additionally thank our local barbershop next to NJIT, Shave Artistry, for being generous enough to send two of their barbers to help cut our dancer's hair. Thank you!
