BELFAST, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- Many women headed out to get their hair done in town Thursday night in an effort to raise money in the fight against breast cancer.
'Makin Waves Hair Salon' unveiled a new color line for fashion night. Yet all the money raised from dye jobs on Thursday went to a good cause.
Last May, a group of women called 'The Holy Walkamoles' took part in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Boston. The admission they paid to participate helped the walk raise a grand total of more than $5 million. The Walkamoles are now looking to take part in the walk again next May.
Members say having this boost from the hair salon will help with that.
"It's just amazing," said Samantha Hammond, who is a member of the 'Walkamoles,' "every fundraiser that we have, all of our friends and family...the community...people that we don't even know come out to support us. It's really great."
In all, 'Makin Waves' helped the Walkamoles raise more than $500 on Thursday night.
