Pantene Celebrity Hair Stylist Tippi Shorter helps "make the cut" for Pantene Beautiful Lengths
Procter & Gamble hosted a hair donation event in support of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, and in partnership with The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s March 2012 production of “Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale” by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman.
More than 120 P&G employees, their family and friends and local community members gathered at the P&G corporate headquarters to each donate their hair to benefit the program
In addition to the hair cutting, representatives from the American Cancer Society spoke at the event held Thursday, March 22, to share their appreciation for the program and those who donate their hair. The master of ceremonies for the event was Kevin Crociata, marketing director of North American Hair Care at Procter & Gamble
Created in 2006, Pantene Beautiful Lengths inspires people to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair to create free, real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.
Previous ponytail donor, Siena Potorski, also spoke at the event. Siena, who has a brittle bone disorder expressed her desire to give back by donating her hair to help others with cancer, just as others have supported her as she struggles with her disease
To date, Pantene Beautiful Lengths has received more than 311,000 hair donations from generous men, women, and children. The American Cancer Society distributes the wigs through their nationwide network of wig banks at no cost. Since the start of the program, more than 18,000 real-hair wigs have been provided to female cancer patients
Mark and Janet are most grateful to all who participated in the event during the Cincinnati run of “Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale” and encourage anyone who has enjoyed their musical productions to consider donating to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, the American Cancer Society, or Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
