Cupcakes for Cancer eighth annual fundraiser

By on October 14, 2019


Shear Emotion Salon and Spa, located in Hilton, began a Cupcakes for Cancer fundraiser eight years ago after seeing cancer affect so many of their friends, family, and clients of the salon. “It was heart breaking,” said Cindy Lutwiller, “so we decided to do something.”  

It started out as a one-day baked goods sale, and was so well received that it sold out. The following year, Cindy and the staff at Shear Emotion decided to turn it into a month-long fundraiser. So far they have raised $8,500, which has all been donated to local cancer organizations. 

 Beginning in October, each week the salon runs different specials, tootsie pop picks for prizes, 50/50 raffles, sentiment ribbon sales, and more. On Saturday, October 26, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., they will be holding the baked food sale featuring cupcakes, cookies, banana bread, “white trash” mix, and an assortment of cakes. New this year is a raffle of gift certificates donated by area businesses. Gift certificates will be raffled off during the entire month of October and the grand prizes will be drawn on Saturday, November 2. All proceeds go the Edelman Research Foundation (Wilmot) and the Lipson Cancer Center.   

“Come help us fight for a cause. Cancer doesn’t care, but we do!” said Cindy. To participate, visit Shear Emotion, 1026 Hilton Parma Corners Road, Hilton, or call 392-0466. To learn more about the event, find them on Facebook or at
