‘Cuts for a Cause’ to benefit WVU Children’s Hospital

Morgantown’s NICO Spalon to host March 29 event

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The NICO Spalon in Morgantown will host its first Cuts for a Cause day March 29 to raise money for West Virginia University Children’s Hospital.

The staff of NICO – a hair salon, art gallery and photography studio – has planned several fundraising activities for the event. From noon to 5 p.m., patrons can have their hair cut and styled for $20. The stylists at NICO are donating their time for the day.

The salon will not take appointments for the day of the event. Instead, the staff hopes people will sign in and take advantage of other activities, including dollar-a-minute chair massages, karaoke and free food.

Salon regulars will also notice a big change to the artwork on the studio walls. Pizza boxes turned into works of art by patients at WVU Children’s Hospital will be on display and available for purchase for a donation.

Clarksburg Beauty Academy will also lend a hand to the event. Rosa Restaurant had donated the pizza boxes and, along with the Boston Beanery, will be providing food.

“We see this as an opportunity to use our entire space to raise money for a worthy cause,” said NICO owner Nicholas Romanoli. “Whether it’s hair, art or music, we hope something connects with somebody.”

The salon is at 80 South Pierpont Road. For more information on Cuts for a Cause, see www.nicospalon.com.
