Fintastics will be selling $5 raffle tickets for a variety of prizes and will match each ticket sale dollar for dollar. It is  also donating $1 per haircut and are encouraging clients to book ahead.

A special events room normally used for glamour girl birthday parties will host magic shows by Aaron Martini and a mini blues concert by blues legend Wes Mackey.

Hoping for a good turnout, owner Jack Tchillingarian has offered up free gifts for the first 50 kids and coffee for grown-ups compliments of Starbucks. Surrey Acting Mayor Marvin Hunt will open the day at 10 a.m. and MLA Jagrup Brar will bring it to a close at 5 p.m.
