AK Lady Barber Asked The Community To Help Benefit Alaska’s Kids Kupboard while Keeping Alaska Handsome. Clients & local businesses rose to the occasion.
Without a doubt, with everyone hunkering down and social distancing, there were bound to be some pretty ragged looking men when our time of quarantining was over! More importantly, after such an economic blow to so many in our community, Sherri Lilly, owner of AK Lady Barber, knew people were suffering. She wanted a way to give back, so she decided to auction off the chance to be her first customer once business re-opened following state-wide COVID-19 closures.
“With all of this, it’s the things you can’t see that bother me. So I thought — who would ever want their kids to go hungry? Kids Kupboard does a fantastic job of feeding kids,” Lilly said.
Bidders raised the stakes for the opportunity to be AK Lady Barber’s first appointment, of which all proceeds directly benefited Alaska’s The Kids Kupboard, a non-profit delivering hundreds of meals around the Mat-Su Valley. Thanks to generous bid-matching contributions by local businesses Solitude Woodworking and All Phase Electric, LLC , we were able to earn $1,325 for The Kids Kupboard.
