Salon event Sunday to aid local family with medical expenses

A group of local hair stylists are banding together to help a friend in need.

The stylists at Salon Independence will be holding a cut-a-thon from 2 to 5 pm. Sunday afternoon to help the Ogle family. Danny Ogle, who was already disabled, suffered what Cassie Gilpin, a suite owner at the salon, calls a “widowmaker” heart attack. And while he survived there are new costs.

One medication alone costs more than his entire disability check, Gilpin said.

During the event, haircuts at Salon Independence will be $12, and other services will also be discounted.

Gilpin said this is a great time to get your entire family’s hair cuts before the holidays, and you will help a great cause.

Salon Independence is in the Clifty Crossing shopping center off of Taylor and National roads in Columbus.
