In preparation for her participation in the Cedars CanSupport Paddle Against Cancer, Josee Asselin, owner of salon Pierre Mon Coiffure, 4445 St. Catherine Street West and Westmount resident, is hosting a fund raiser pizza party in the salon on Friday, August 11 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, August 12 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The community is invited to stop in and join in on the fun that will happen while client’s are enjoying hair styling, manicures and pedicures from Josee’s five stylists.
The fun will include prize winning pizza from neighbourhood Copoli restaurant, beverages, and carrot cake. Yum. And door prizes of gift certificates for the salon.
Four years ago Josee was diagnosed with, and successfully treated for, breast cancer. Her husband Luc and daughter Audrey Maude fought back in part by participating in the Cedars CanSupport dragon boat races and festivals.
This year Josee is joining them in the annual event that will take place rain or shine on Saturday, September 9 on the waterfront of the Promenade Pere-Marquette, on the Lachine Canal. The Dragon Boat Race and Festival is a full day of competition and festivities. However, participation in the event begins well before Race Day with participants raising money for the cause in advance. Proceeds from Josee’s fund raiser will go directly to her participation in that project.
And of course, as anyone who has experienced a crisis knows too well, you cannot get through it without the help of family and friends. This coming weekend’s fun would not have been possible without the help of Josee’s husband and daughter her brother Yves, her brother in law Christian, good friend Stephanie Collinet, stylist Manon Lavoie, and client Anne. Thank you to them on behalf of Josee. I include it to encourage you to help a loved one through crisis… we desperately need more of that.
