“These fundraising efforts could not exist without the generous support of every salon involved and amazing corporations such as Raylon and we are forever grateful of their time and dedication to our cause,” Harry Giordano, Senior Director of Development of City of Hope, Northeast Region. “Without our salon partners and parent sponsors such as the Raylon Corporation, none of this could be possible. The products and support that Raylon donates to the hundreds of participating “HopeCuts” salons is astronomical.”


Dr. Eric Bernstein and his team from the Main Line Center for Laser Surgery (32 Parking Plaza #200, Ardmore) will add a fun twist to HopeCuts by offering hair removal using laser techniques from the back, arms, underarms, lips, legs or anywhere you have unwanted growth.
