Owen Matthews in Cardinals garb

Another fundraiser for Owen Matthews, 10, of Eddyville and his family in his battle with terminal cancer will be held Aug. 8 in Eddyville.

Attitudes Hair Design & Day Spa are supporting an effort to raise funds for a local boy with terminal cancer and his family.

The hair salon and spa want to help make a difference — one haircut at a time — for Owen Matthews, 10, and his family in the boy’s battle with terminal cancer. The event will take place on Saturday, Aug 8, beginning at 8 a.m. and running until 2 p.m. at the salon at 686 U.S. 62 East in Eddyville.

“Attitudes will donate all the proceeds from this one-day haircut event to the Mathews family,” said salon owner Robin Johnson.

“It’s a fun event for a great cause and an amazing young man and family,” added Deb Domke, executive director of the Lake Barkley Chamber of Commerce. “This is a wonderful effort from the Johnson family and the team at Attitudes wanting to give back and give a local family a hand up in their fight against cancer. It’s what makes living in Lyon County so special.”

In the last two weeks, two massive fundraiser have been held at Lee S. Jones Park in Eddyville and a roadblock and bake sale in Fredonia was held over the weekend.
