China Blue, Bella Mia stylists schedule cut-a-thon for late pastor’s family
Stylists from China Blue Salon and Day Spa and Bella Mia Salon, Spa & Boutique invite the community to “help make a difference with one haircut” on Sunday, March 30.
Free shampoos and haircuts will be given in China Blue Salon, 17135 Main St., from noon to 5 p.m. with donations to benefit the family of the late Pastor Charles Youngkin, who died last month.
Youngkin, pastor of Mountain View Community Church, suffered from chronic leukemia for the past five years, presenting no symptoms from it, said Sydney Davison, public relations manager for China Blue Salon and Day Spa.
“With a weak immune system, he wasn’t able to fight the H1N1 flu virus, and unfortunately died,” said Davison, calling Youngkin “an inspiration and a rock to the people of Mountain View Community Church as well as the citizens of Ramona.”
A silent auction will be held during the cut-a-thon. Ramona businesses such as Amici’s, Ramona Fitness, Unicorn Books and Gifts and Yogurt Barn are donating items and services to the auction. All money raised will go to Youngkin’s family to help support them during this difficult time, Davison noted.
“We urge all of the citizens of Ramona to come out to the event, get a haircut, bid on a fun time in Ramona, and fellowship together as a community,” she said.
