MON KOMO Hotel will once again raise awareness and funding for the Leukaemia Foundation, as two of the venue’s staff will be shaving their heads for 2014’s World’s Greatest Shave held this month.
The Leukaemia Foundation’s well-established, annual World’s Greatest Shave fundraising event, running from the 13th through to the 16th of March, will see registrants around Australia colour, wax or shave their hair in an attempt to raise further donations and awareness for Blood Cancer research.
The foundation provides support for those diagnosed with Leukaemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma and other types of blood cancer, as well as raises much-needed funding for medical research and treatment.
On Saturday 15th March, Mon Komo Hotel will host an official Public Shave day event in the Cabana Bar and Terrace from 2-4pm and in conjunction with local Scarborough hairdresser Making Waves, will encourage people to colour or shave their hair to raise donations for the national not-for-profit organisation.
Mon Komo Hotel’s Duty Manager Reuben Budd and Bar Attendant Jesse Lawrence have already registered to shave their heads on the day, while Marketing Coordinator Katrina Savage and Duty Manager Shyra Rees will have their hair coloured.
As a team, Mon Komo Hotel hopes to raise over $1000 in total sponsorship.
Mr Budd said he was more than willing to partake in the annual fundraiser event and was happy to ‘brave the shave’ if it meant raising funds for a good cause.
Mon Komo Hotel’s public shave day event will be held on the Saturday afternoon with evening entertainment starting at 8.30pm.
Those looking to have their hair coloured or shaved can join the Mon Komo Hotel team from 2-4pm, by registering online at www.worldsgreatestshave.com and bringing their registration receipt on the day or can alternatively, call the hotel to register.
Kyko Group’s Director of Hospitality Matt Newberry said following on from the success of last year’s Greatest Shave event at Mon Komo, he anticipates this year’s fundraiser will be bigger and better.
