A new cutting-edge kid’s salon that combines function with fun and entertainment is celebrating its grand opening with fundraiser for The Surrey Firefighters Association Burn Fund on Saturday, April 9 from 9:45 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Donation opportunities include kid’s beauty services like minicures, temporary tattoos, make-up and fancy hair up-dos. Kids big and small will also have a chance to meet firefighter Mark Bernoia and (barring emergencies) get a close-up look at a fire truck.
Fintastics will be selling $5 raffle tickets for a variety of prizes and will match each ticket sale dollar for dollar. It is also donating $1 per haircut and are encouraging clients to book ahead.
A special events room normally used for glamour girl birthday parties will host magic shows by Aaron Martini and a mini blues concert by blues legend Wes Mackey.
Hoping for a good turnout, owner Jack Tchillingarian has offered up free gifts for the first 50 kids and coffee for grown-ups compliments of Starbucks. Surrey Acting Mayor Marvin Hunt will open the day at 10 a.m. and MLA Jagrup Brar will bring it to a close at 5 p.m.
Throughout the day folks will have a chance to check out the salon with its TV/DVD/radio equipped chairs that also feature Nintendo WII, XBox and Playstation 3 as well as baby-friendly vehicles like Thomas the Train, Pink Barbie Jeep and Red Ferrari.
