The Pickett Fence came together with Shear Salon & Spa to collect donations for a young girl, Jayda, fighting a battle with leukemia.
Alexis Frank, an independent stylist working out of Shear Salon, recently became aware of the cancer diagnosis of the daughter of her former Air Force colleague. Without hesitation, Frank started collecting donations for a care package for the family,, and created the local fundraiser to encourage others to donate as well.
The “All Fenced In” event held by The Pickett Fence has quickly become a Settler’s Day staple. The event, which was co-hosted by The Pickett Fence and Seven Arrows Design Co., grants an opportunity for local businesses to set up a table or booth to showcase their wares. This year, however, they took the event one step further with help from Frank with the fundraiser.
Even though Settler’s Day has now passed, Frank is continuing to collect donations. She has a box set up at Shear Salon and Spa through the month of August, where you can donate cash or items for the care package. For the months of August and September, Frank will also be shaving heads or undercuts for an additional donation to go to the family when you use #TeamJayda when making the appointment.
Jayda loves arts & crafts and Greek mythology. If you would like to follow Jayda’s fight, the family has created a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/donate/899044023804127/ where you can also donate online.
