Lining up to be scalped at Cuts 4 Cancer

    For the last seven years February has been busy for Cathy Morse at the Chop Shop as the shop hosts Cuts 4 Cancer.
    The event in dedication of Morse’s mother, has raised thousands of dollars for the Drumheller Area Health Foundation and, in turn, the whole community that uses the hospital. This year they are hoping to raise $30,000. Last year they raised about $25,000, so it is entirely possible.
    The idea is simple, walk into the Chop Shop on February 3 and get a haircut. The funds you pay go directly to the Drumheller Area Health Foundation.
    Of course there are a few that go that one step further, and put a bounty on their hair. The Chop Shop has lined up a number of heads to go under the razor to make that happen.
    Over the last few months residents may have noticed Cathy’s cousin Ken Schinnour of Allied Distributors getting a little shaggy. That is because he is going to shave it all off at the annual event come February 3.
    He laughs that his goal is not to freeze after his locks are shorn, but he hopes to raise $5,000 along the way.
    A famous moustache is about to drop come Cuts 4 Cancer as David Lee has put a bounty on his famous handlebars. So far he has raised about $2,000, and counting.
    Brent Powell of Newcastle Bar has also put his locks on the line and is hoping to raise $1,000. Patsy Andrew at the Drumheller Health Centre is also losing her locks for the cause.
    Titans Football will join the Chop Shop again this year. Last year the team participated and this year they are back. Morse says she has commitment from all members of the championship senior team, including coaches Ken Fournier and Jason Rasmussen, as well as 13 of the bantams.
    Pledge sheets are still available at the Chop Shop for those interested in participating in raising funds.
