Denise Marie, proprietor of Dapper Dan's hair salon in New Smyrna Beach held a haircut a-thon fundraiser several weeks back for breast cancer research in honor of her mother, Margaret Varanoa, now 80 and a 22-year survivor. In the inset photo, Jim Walsh of the UPS Store does his part: Not only fdid he get a haircut, but he printed all of the event flyers for free. At left, the "sexy" mannequin outside Dapper Dan's, 633 N. Dixie Freeway, turned heads and even brought in a few for a trim. Below, stylist Roxanne Wessler cuts a little boy's hair.
NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Today is a day where Denise Marie leaves her scissors behind at her and instead stands on her feet preparing the family Thanksgiving meal.
There is no rest for the weary when it comes to this small business owner who stands on her feet all day to earn an honest day's work. Several weeks back, Sunday, Oct. 24, to be precise when the salon is normally closed, Marie worked for free to support a cause. And she enlisted others to help her, too.
The cause? Marie, along with four other stylists from shops near and far donated 100% of the price of haircuts to the Susan Komen Breast cancer Research Foundation. Together they generated several hundred dollars, including the sale of pink ribbons and T-shirts emblazoned with "Save the Ta Tas."
