Hair for Hazel
Donate your ponytail to kids who lost their hair due to illness. Beauticians will cut your hair and give it a new style—free—on Thursday, Feb. 13, 6–7 p.m. at the 5th Avenue Color Company. If your ponytail is 8 inches long or longer, you can donate your hair.

Coffee, Cookies and Conversation
