Beverly Hills, California, UNITED STATES

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., June 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When David Dennis learned that his family's home was destroyed as a result of the May 22 tornado in Joplin, Missouri, his employer Angus Mitchell Salon ~ Beverly Hills, was determined to create hope after the storm. To help the Joplin community recover and rebuild after the deadliest tornado in American history, Angus Mitchell Salon will be hosting a 'Tornado Relief Cut-A-Thon' on Sunday, July 10 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. All proceeds will be going to the American Red Cross' relief efforts in Joplin.

"We have all been moved by the heartbreaking images and stories coming out of Joplin, and the disaster particularly hits closer to home as David's family house was destroyed by the tornado," commented Angus. "We hope everyone will come out and help make a difference in the lives of those in need."

The May 22 tornado took the lives of more than 116 people, leaving hundreds more homeless. With more than an estimated $3 billion needed to rebuild the city of Joplin, a full recovery could take several years.
