Pyure Aveda Salon in Boynton Beach, FL, will host a cut-a-thon on May 17 from 9am to 2pm. The event will raise money to help pay for the open heart surgery of Ezra Mokotoff, son of the salon's color director, Eric Charles Mokotoff. Ezra was born in February 2009 with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect, and the family's health insurance won't cover the cost of the surgery (scheduled for May 21). "I have been a hair colorist and platform artist/educator for over 16 years, giving everything I have to the industry; now my child needs your help," Eric says. The fundraiser is being held in conjunction with the Spencer Crawford Childrenâ€™s Foundation, a not for profit organization that provides physical, emotional and financial support to children diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening illness and their families. The foundation's services are provided free of charge, and they rely solely on public, private and corporate donations for funding.
If you are in the area on May 17, please consider stoping by Pyure Aveda Salon to help Ezra and his family. If you're unable to attend the cut-a-thon and would like to make a donation, you can do so at the group's facebook page (http://apps.facebook.com/causes/fundraising_pledges/66199?m=70aaf40a), on the Spencer Crawford Web site (http://www.spencercrawford.org/help_us.php), or by mailing a check payable to Eric Mokotoff (ITF) Ezra Mokotoff to the salon at the address below.
