Cut-a-Thon to Save the Sound
Owner Nancy Aponte is hosting a cut-a-thon at Monroe’s Salon Aponte to benefit Save the Sound, an organization focused on ensuring a healthy, sustainable Long Island Sound. Taking place from 10am to 3pm, the November 18 event will feature cut and styling for customers with proceeds going to the organization.
There will also be a raffle with over 50 chances to win prizes. Many businesses from Monroe, Newtown, Shelton, Stratford, Milford and Westport have donated gift cards for restaurants, boutiques, health food stores and cafes.
Aponte grew up in Stratford and enjoyed spending time at the beach with friends and family, as well as cycling through Lordship, a coastal section of the town. She hopes to bring awareness to the health of Long Island Sound, an estuary ecosystem with a watershed covering more than 16,000 square miles.
Shorelines are delicate biological environments where plant and animal life are threatened by global warming and pollution.
Established in 1990, Salon Aponte is an eco-conscious hair salon offering safer alternatives in hair, skin and nail products.
