Tremont, OH (WOIO) - On Sunday, February, 7, The Gentleman's Barber Shop, a popular salon that caters to gentleman and little gentleman alike, opened their doors today to A Special Wish Foundation Cleveland Chapter's (ASW) wish children and their families for complimentary haircuts.
"We love what ASW does with these families and their Splashes of Joy program, and we wanted to be apart of it" says barber shop co-owner, Elizabeth Rodriguez.
The foundation's "Splashes of Joy" program was developed by ASW Cleveland Chapter to create memorable experiences while the family is battling the illness.
Once the child is ready to travel he/she then goes on their "Big Wish"(I.e. Disney World, celebrity meet & greets, etc.).
Currently, ASW has over sixty "Splashes of Joy" partners throughout NE Ohio.
These partnerships include: Chuck E Cheese, Dave and Busters, Sky Zone, Lego Store and Build-a-Bear. ASW also partners with spas, salons, restaurants and movie theaters for a much needed "Date Night" for mom and dad.
During the event, barber shop created a VIP experience with haircuts, juice boxes, candy, and a special appearance by Spider-Man for the children, and haircuts and a hot shave for the dads.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for our wish dads and their sons to relax and get pampered for the day, especially before the big game tonight. The Gentleman's Barber Shop is a wonderful addition to our Splashes of Joy program", says Jason Beudert, co-founder A Special Wish Foundation Cleveland Chapter.
The Gentleman's Barber Shop is located at 2338 West 11th Street, Cleveland.
