'Holiday Hair Trimming' To Raise Money For Project Graduation

Hair salon in Netcong will hold fundraiser on Sunday for Hopatcong High School.

Residents will have the chance to raise money for this year's Hopatcong High School project graduation by getting a hair cut at Gina Marie's Hair Studio on Sunday.

The Holiday Hair Trimming event will be held at the Netcong hair salon from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. All of the money raised will go towards providing the high school seniors with a fun and safe night after graduation in June.

The salon will be offering walk-in hair cuts priced at $10 for men and children and $15 for women.

Salon owner Gina Marie Martinelli said she hopes to see some of her former customers after recently relocating to Netcong from Landing in August.

"We're just hoping we have a good turnout and we can raise a good amount of money for them," she said.

Hopatcong parent Loreen Callahan, who's involved with project graduation, said about $7,600 has already been raised this year through various fundraisers including a vendor fair, and poinsettia and chrysanthemum sales. She said funds are a little low this year, and they need to raise about $20,000 by the end of the year.

There's also another fundraiser coming up on Wednesday at IHOP in Kenvil from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., where the restaurant will donate proceeds to project graduation.

The Holiday Hair Trimming will be held at Gina Marie's Hair Studio located at 134 Main Street in Netcong from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
