Clip For the Cure Raises $1 Million

In their annual October Clip for the Cure event, Regis Corporation, a leader in beauty salons, hair restoration centers and cosmetology education, helped raise over $1 million for the Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

During the month-long Clip for the Cure, participating salons offered discounted hair cuts and sold exclusive pink products to benefit the cause. “My managers, staff and stylists are even more passionate about the event because of my experience,” says Penny Woods, area supervisor for HairMasters in Alabama, a two-year breast cancer survivor and a participant in Clip for the Cure for nearly 20 years. Also as part of the campaign, 10 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of private label products were donated to the foundation.

To date, the company’s stylists and clients have raised $8 million to support breast cancer research at Mayo Clinic, along with other nationally recognized breast cancer research centers. For more information on Clip for the Cure, visit
