Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2010
Federico Career College partnered with KUZZ Radio and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital for the second year in a row to raise money for the children’s hospital. Their Cut-a-Thon event was a success.
The beauty school, with locations in Bakersfield and Fresno, is deeply committed to helping raise money for important charities.
“St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital does so much for so many families, we felt this was an excellent group to get involved with,” said Sam Federico, owner of Federico Career Colleges. “Our students really enjoy putting their efforts toward a good cause and connecting with the community.”
Over the course of the week, many generous families came by the Bakersfield location to have their hair cut for this event. The campus has a full salon where students provide all the services at discounted prices. Each haircut cost $9, and 50% of the proceeds from all of these haircuts went straight to St. Jude’s.
The Cut-a-Thon was held in conjunction with KUZZ Radio in Bakersfield. The country radio station held a Radiothon to raise money for St. Jude’s. Students from Federico even got to stop by the radio station and cut the hair of Steve, the morning show host.
The contributions raised by Federico Career College and KUZZ Radio will help St. Jude’s conduct research on children’s cancer and someday find a cure for these awful diseases.
