Philadelphia, PA (5/6/19): Beasley Media Group, LLC; a subsidiary of Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: BBGI) announces 93.3 WMMR-FM Preston & Steve® Show Morning Personality Kathy Romano hosted the 12thannual Kathy’s Cuts to benefit Wigs for Kids. The event took place on Friday, May 3, 2019 at TruBeauty Concepts in Southampton.
The non-profit organization helps children “look like themselves” and live their lives.
The event produced 124 donations to benefit Wigs for Kids. 27 hair stylists from Gravity Hair Salon, David Arnold Hair Salon and Taire Hair Salon helped to cut and style donors’ hair.
“Over a decade ago, I wanted to cut my hair short, but didn’t want my long locks to just fall to the floor, get swept up and thrown in the trash, so I decided to donate them!” said Romano. “I contacted my friend Joe, who is the owner of Gravity Hair Salon. He helped me come up with the idea of asking others to cut their hair. Now, we’ve created this amazing event for over 10 years where men, women, and children come out to cut their beautiful hair and donate it to children in need of real hair wigs.”
“It’s truly a community effort,” added WMMR Promotion Director Eric Simon. “The salons and stylists, as well as Kathy, come together to do something that makes a difference in a child’s life. The radio station is a voice to get the word out and the listeners step up to make the donation. It’s a proud moment for WMMR to be a part of something very special.”
Catering at the event was courtesy of Panera Bread in Feasterville and complimentary beverages was provided by of Metro Beverage Philadelphia.
