's annual Clip for the Cure campaign has raised $1 million for the Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. Clip for the Cure took place in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
On Saturday, October 13, over 7,000 Regis Corporation corporate salons participated in the company's annual hair cutting event. Stylists gave over 240,000 haircuts, with Regis Corporation donating a portion of the proceeds from the cuts to the Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. Throughout October, salons also donated 10% of net proceeds from the sale of private label products like DESIGNLINE, Cost Cutters Professional and MasterCuts' M/C line. Guests helped to raise funds and awareness by purchasing limited-edition pink products.
"Clip for the Cure is an important campaign for Regis; many of our stylists and guests are women, and many of us have had families or friends directly affected by breast cancer," said Dan Hanrahan, president and CEO, Regis Corporation.
To date, Regis Corporation has raised over $10 million, which has benefited the University of Minnesota's Masonic Cancer Center, the Mayo Clinic and other nationally recognized organizations.
