WEST DUNDEE – Bii Hair Salon will host a benefit Cut-a-thon from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday for the Illinois District 13 World Series Challenger Team.

The event will be at the salon, 1955 Huntley Road, West Dundee.

A haircut will be available for a minimum donation of $25. Children’s “clipper cuts” will cost $15. Those who sponsor a $100 makeover for a Challenger player mom will receive a commemorative T-shirt.

All of the proceeds will go to the Challenger Little League World Series Team. Challenger, a division of Little League, is geared toward children with mental or physical disabilities. The program gives these children the opportunity to play organized Little League baseball.

The Illinois District 13 Challenger Team, which includes children from Dundee, Carpentersville and Gilberts, has been selected to play an exhibition game Aug. 24 at the 2013 Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pa.

Individuals or businesses interested in sponsorships can receive more information by calling Bii at 847-428-8821 or emailing info@biihairsalon.com.
