Crazy Haircut Raises $10,675.05 thanks to Blind Duck Cafe in Bungendore

Loretta Heskett, the owner of Blind Duck Café in Bungendore has graciously donated $10,675.05 to the Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group after she auctioned off the privilege for someone to choose her haircut at The Blind Duck Café Charity Dinner last Wednesday.

Loretta, who had participated in shave for a cure 3 years ago had been growing her hair since but decided to go through it all again to raise funds for The Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group.

Loretta decided to hold the fundraiser for the Group when her husband’s Aunty was re-diagnosed with breast cancer 1 week before Christmas last year.

A lovely Irish lady won the right to select the haircut and elected a very specific style called the quarter cut for Sharmayne from Gossips Hair Salon to style.

Loretta went four days with the haircut until she shaved it on Sunday morning to prevent any more starring and inquisitive glances.

Loretta wasn’t the only one to get the chop, Loretta’s father in law, Ray Heskett also decided to shave his beard of 38 years for the cause, raising $1,500 in itself.

The event also involved a silent auction of a number of items including an Australian Cricket Team Jersey signed by Brad Haddin that sold for a massive $1,250.

From all of us at The Cancer Support Group, we thank you for your very kind donation and fundraising efforts and we wish you all the best for the future.
