Huff said the hair is made into a wig that can cost between $3,500 to $7,000. The wigs are donated to children free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial aid.
Besides cutting hair, a silent auction will take place.
According to the Locks of Love website, the wigs provide self-esteem and bring confidence back to the children. It helps enable them to confidently face their world and peers.
