Southwest Floridians have the opportunity to help make history on Sunday, November 6th as Cre8 Salon & Spa attempts to break the current world record for the most haircuts performed by a team in eight hours. The Guinness World Record Cre8 Cut-A-Thon Challenge will be held from 10am to 6pm at Cre8 Salon on 814 SW Pine Island Road in Cape Coral. A representative from Guinness World Records will be on site to officiate the event and verify the results. The goal is to reach at least 300 haircuts in eight hours with a team of ten stylists, which would break the current record by at least 50 haircuts. In addition to the world record attempt, the event is also a fundraiser for the Florida Chapter of ALS Association, which helps those afflicted with ALS, or Lou Gerhig's Disease. Members of the community are invited to call and schedule an appointment for a haircut during the event for only $8 each, with all proceeds going to the ALS Association. The first eligible 300 people to reserve their appointments will be automatically entered to win a full day at the spa, valued at over $300.
“We decided to hold this Cut-A-Thon Challenge in honor of one of our clients, who has ALS,” said Marcy Sagorac, one of Cre8's owners. She continued “We hope lots of people will come out and support this important charity with us and help us break a world record while we're at it.”
The event will also feature live music, food and other entertainment. Appointments are encouraged for the haircuts but walk-ins will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call Cre8 at 239-458-2704. For more information on the ALS Association in Florida, please call (888) 257-1717 or visit www.alsafl.org.
