The Clearfield County Career and Technology Center’s (CCCTC) Adult Cosmetology program recently held their annual “It’s So Much More Than Hair” event.  The event is a project that the students hold every year to raise awareness about Alopecia.  They donate wigs to anyone with hair loss and raise money for a deserving family/group/person. This year the event raised over $3,000 for baby Elijah Amato, who is battling an Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid tumor in his brain.  Students in the program worked the event by handing out wigs, doing nail art, selling chances, doing face painting, and more.
