Jo Bruno Hair raises over $2,000 for the KHAIR Program!

Jo Bruno Hair in New Haven hosted its annual holiday event on Thursday, December 10, 2015. In lieu of holiday gifts to clients, they offered a discount on L’Anza hair treatment services during the months of November and December, with all proceeds going to the KHAIR program. After the event, they raised $2,100.

Jo Bruno Hair has offered this holiday benefit to clients for three years and has been a participating KHAIR network salon for the past four. During the fundraiser, L’Anza hair treatments normally priced from $15-$20 were offered for only $5.

KHAIR Program Manager, Elvin Melendez, was on hand to answer any questions about KHAIR, which serves at-risk youth by pairing them with hairstylists or barbers who provide free hair care services to bolster self-esteem.

“The KHAIR program is doing a fantastic job with these kids – keep up the great work,” said Catherine Ranciato of L’Anza Healing Healthcare, which donated all of the products used for the holiday promotion. At the event, she spoke with Jo Bruno Hair clients on the benefits of using L’Anza products.

The Community Health Network of Connecticut Foundation, Inc. would like to thank Jo Bruno Hair for its continued support and dedication to the KHAIR program. We look forward to continuing our work with them for years to come.
