A grand celebration

A new children’s salon celebrated its grand opening earlier this month by raising nearly $500 for the Surrey Firefighters Association Burn Fund.

The April 9 fundraiser saw close to 400 people visit Fintastics Cuts for Kids, which gave more than 50 haircuts, mostly to babies.

Festivities included a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Surrey Coun. Marvin Hunt and six firefighters, who brought along a lime-green fire truck.

Visitors were treated to pizza, coffee, gifts, magic by Aaron Martini and live music by blues artist Wes Mackey and Canadian Idol alumnus Lisa Nicole.

The day closed with a grand prize draw by Surrey-Panorama Ridge MLA Jagrup Brar.

The salon – 101-15905 Fraser Hwy. – is now looking forward to hosting a Talent Showcase.
