Attend West Coast debut of Lolly’s Locks benefit

The West Coast debut of Lolly’s Locks, a nonprofit organization providing cancer patients with high-quality wigs, will be held June 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Oswego Lake Country Club.

Hosted by Lake Oswegans Teri Oerlich and Chuck Sauvain, the public is invited for beverages, appetizers and information about Lolly’s Locks, founded by Jaime Wright, whose mother died last year of cancer.

“Just over a year ago I lost a dear friend (Lolly) to ovarian cancer,” said Oelrich. “Her family has started an amazing charity to provide high-quality wigs to women undergoing treatment of any type of cancer. Her goal was to tackle her disease on her own terms and to try to look and feel as good as possible.”

Oelrich said for some cancer patients, hair loss is one of the most emotionally devastating side effects of chemotherapy, and wigs can cost between $1,500 and $3,500, and that many insurance companies won’t cover the cost of a wig, and the ones that do typically don’t provide enough funds to make purchasing a quality wig an option.
