Hair today...

March 02, 2011

Lake Orion High School Principal Sophia Lafayette recently put hairstyle on the line for a great cause.

As an incentive for students to get involved in charitable events and support the Lake Orion Education Foundationís (LOEF) second Annual Cut-A-Thon, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 13 at the two Glitz Salons in Lake Orion, Lafayette offered to let the class with the highest participation choose her hairstyle for a day, and the response was "Mohawk."

She wasn't kidding. Lafayette got a real Mohawk haircut from one of the Glitz Salon Stylists on Wednesday, Feb. 16 at Lake Orion High School.

This years Cut-A-Thon raised over $2,000 and in addition to funding the LOEF Grant Program, the LOEF partnered with every school and will be splitting the proceeds with each participating school's PTA.

100 percent of the proceeds raised by the foundation go to support the advancement of educational programs for students in the Lake Orion Community School District.

LOEF is a nonprofit orginization that holds several special events to raise funds to further the educational opportunities in our community.
