WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Dueling Drag Brunches, Get Your Hair Did For Charity and More

What the gays are doing in Philadelphia this weekend.

SPOTLIGHT: What sounds better: helping others or helping yourself? It can be a tough question to answer, but what if I said you could do both at the same time? City of Hope is a nationally recognized cancer research hospital, which, for the tenth year, has made it on U.S. News & World Report‘s list of the top cancer care facilities in the U.S.. Though the facility is located in Duarte, Cali.,  it is reaching out to metropolises around the country — including Philadelphia — in an event called “HopeCuts,” a charitable opportunity that benefits its work to battle cancer, HIV/AIDS and diabetes.

It kicks off this Sunday and all you have to do to take part is get your hair did in one of Philadelphia’s 13 participating salons. The events and promotions in each salon will vary, but regardless, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to City of Hope. Guests will enjoy specially priced services, entertainment, refreshments, raffle prizes and more. You’ll look good, enjoy a fabulous salon trip and help a worthy cause. For more information and for a list of participating salons in Philly, go here. Sun., Sept. 15, various times.
