Elle Marie Hair Studio recently distributed funds from their seventh annual Pink Hair 2 Save a Pair fundraiser. Money was raised during the months of October and November as the public was invited to have a pink hair extension applied for a $10 donation. More than $4,000 was raised directly from pink hair applications with another $2,000 coming through additional donations. Since 2007, Elle Marie has raised more than $17,000 toward breast cancer awareness.

Mukilteo-based Diamond Knot Craft Brewing was able to donate more than $2,200 and much needed winter clothing to Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County through this year’s Coats for Kids drive. Donations were accepted at all Diamond Knot locations during the month of December. This is the fourth year that the brewery has held its Coats for Kids drive.
