Sky Zone Everett and Black Label Barber Shop Buzz Off for Kids with Cancer
Sky Zone Everett, 69 Norman St. in Everett, was buzzing with excitement this past Thursday, June 4th, when Jah L., one of the very experienced barber’s from Black Label Barber Shop, located at 181 Broadway, in Everett, donated his time and skills, and along with an eager-to-get-buzzed group of Sky Zone volunteers, helped raise money and awareness for “The Buzz For Kids” campaign, sponsored by Boston’s Children’s Hospital and the Jimmy Fund.
Armed with his barbering tools, he joyfully buzzed the heads of several Sky Zone Employees, including Regional Manager, Chris Wietecha, Operations Manager for Sky Zone Danvers, Alex Tierney, Sky Zone Everett Court Monitor Steve Garrity and Sky Zone Everett’s Lead Court Monitor Joey Montiel. They all pledged to “Go Bald” for this very worthy cause and they raised over $1,100!
The One Mission Buzz Off is a fun and unforgettable event where participants shave their heads in honor and support of kids with cancer; kids who don’t have the choice to lose their hair. Everyone agreed that the men looked great with their new bald heads. Barber Jah L., who was recruited by his brother Joey Montiel (both residents of Everett), was honored to be a part of this year’s event and said he’ll be back next year. “It was a blast”, said Joanne Codi, Sky Zone Everett’s General Manager. “We’re already talking about next year and even some of the female employees are considering getting ‘buzzed’.
All monies raised from this event will help children right away with things such as redecorating their hospital rooms, throwing the children parties, providing art therapy, music therapy, financial assistance for their families and far more.
