Patrick Lomantini will be grooming people, not dogs during his BarkAID North American tour in downtown Franklin from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 28.
But the haircuts he will be giving on that day will benefit the Williamson County Animal Center.
Lomantini, a master stylist, will bring his “get a haircut for a cause” tour to Classic Sports Barber Shop, 105 5th Avenue North (behind Sweet Cece’s) for $25, with all proceeds going to the Animal Center.
Lomantini has been traveling the country for seven years, holding hair cutting events to benefit hundreds of animal shelters. Locally he has teamed up with Classic Sports Barber Shop, and is bringing the first BarkAID event to Franklin.
Debbie Sims, Public Outreach Coordinator for WCAC said, “We are excited to team up with Patrick and the other stylists for this fun event. Tents will be set up in the parking lot in front of Classic Sports Barber Shop and there will be food and music along with great haircuts for a cause.”
The public is invited to stop by and meet adoptable shelter dogs and enjoy the vendors. To make an appointment for a men’s or women’s haircut, contact Classic Sports at 615-595-0094. Drop-ins will also be welcomed.
