Community at Cuts for Gabbiee Event

COLUMBIA (WACH) -- Cuts for Gabbiee, the hair cutting event in honor of Gabbiee Swainson, raised $1,758.50 for the Swainson family.

On Sunday, Aug. 25th, Ridge View High SchoolMaster Haircare instructor, Terex Smalls, and barbers from Alâ??s Upper Cuts and Celebrity Status Barber shops were among those cutting hair for students, faculty, staff and the Richland District Two Community.

Mr. Smalls wanted to do something for the community that would also support the Swainson family.

Ridge View High School Cheerleaders, Beta Club, DECA, and FBLA members worked the event and collected donations on Hard Scrabble and Summit Parkway raoads.

Donations are still being accepted by the PTSO until Friday, Aug.30th.

The money will be used to purchase a marker and bench for Gabbiee at Greenlawn Cemetery.
