MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 295,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. To help raise money and awareness for breast cancer research, Regis Corporation (NYSE: RGS) will host Clip for the Cure, their annual, one-day haircutting event on Saturday, October 19. This year, more than 7,000 Regis corporate salons and over 50,000+ stylists will host the daylong event, which is held during Breast Cancer Awareness month in October.


To take part in Clip for the Cure, guests simply visit their participating Regis corporate salon on October 19 and get a haircut; 10% of proceeds from each cut will go to the Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research, which supports early diagnosis, prevention, treatment and research to find a cure for breast cancer.

Regis Corp. also offers other opportunities to raise money for this important cause. From Sunday, September 1 through Thursday, October 31, salons will sell breast cancer awareness products including $2 rings and $12 bracelets as well as other limited-edition pink products. In addition, salons will accept guest and business cash donations to the Foundation.

"Clip for the Cure is close to our guests and stylists because so many of us know someone who has been touched by breast cancer," said Regis Corp. President and CEO Dan Hanrahan. "Breast cancer research has been a focus of Regis Corporation for over 20 years, and we're proud to help raise money and awareness for this cause."
