Do & Dye Cut-A-Thon Celebrates 6 Years

tags: Center for Autism Services, Science and Innovation (CASSI™) Event Recaps

Several years ago, Rebecca’s nephew, Matthew, was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. After months of searching, the family finally turned to Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Center for Autism and Related Disorders and began treatment. Matthew has made significant gains since then.

Rebecca was so grateful for the care and support Matthew and his Mom (Rebecca's sister) received from the staff at Kennedy Krieger that she wanted to find a way to give back, thus the annual Do & Dye Cut-A-Thon was born. For the past six years, the staff at the Do & Dye Salon have donated their time and space to support Kennedy Kennedy Krieger. The event features discounted haircuts, a 50/50 raffle, and more prize raffles. Through the 2018 Do-and-Dye Cut-athon, Rebecca raised more than $10,500 for autism and related disorders at Kennedy Krieger!

When asked what Kennedy Krieger means to her, Rebecca simply said, “Answers. You all provided my family answers to the questions they had been asking for a long time.”

Thank you to Rebecca and all the staff and volunteers at Do and Dye Salon who allow Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Center for Autism and Related Disorders to continue to provide answers to families in need.
