Sunfest weekend in Castlegar is sure to be a busy time for all. But if you have an extra 20 minutes and a shaggy main of hair, why not swing by Glen's Barber Shop and help support a great cause.

Glen Carew from Glen's Barber Shop (355 Columbia Avenue) will be donating all proceeds from his Carew cuts (and other haircuts) on Saturday, June 2, to the Castlegar Hospice Society. Glen and wife Marsha came up with the idea and approached hospice Society executive director Suzanne Lehbauer.

"Normally, he's closed on Saturdays. But he's going to open up especially for the fundraiser on June 2, which is also during Sunfest," she said. "It's going to go from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. He's going to cut as many heads of hair as he can at his regular price. All of the money plus all the tips - every single cent - is going to Hospice. So, that's pretty cool."

The Castlegar Hospice Society is also busy planning for the upcoming fourth annual charity golf tournament on June 24 at the Castlegar Golf Club. Some of the items up for auction at the golf tournament include A Beatles autographed album, a Michael Jackson autographed album, a trip to the Grammys, and a trip to the Super Bowl. For information or to register call Suzanne at 250-304-1266.
