XENIA — Greene County Career Center’s recent cut-a-thon to benefit Brantley Valiton raised over $2,000, according to Cosmetology instructor Lisa Bricker.

Brantley’s mom, Jennifer, was presented the proceeds and will apply it to Brantley’s medical expenses. Brantley was born with unilateral reflux and renal dysplasia and needs a kidney transplant. Jennifer Valiton is a graduate of the Career Center’s Cosmetology program.

The event featured shampoos by junior students, cuts by professional stylists from the area who donated their time, and drying and styling by senior students. A raffle and bake sale were among other activities tied into the cut-a-thon with over 50 Career Center students donating their time and talents. The event was held in conjunction with Great Clips, Uptown Charley’s and other local salons.
