A fundraiser in memory of Dana Sassano, the Clarkstown North High School senior who died in a car accident last week, is taking place today at Salon FX, 300 S Main St. in New City.
Sassano’s friends and classmates will be getting purple hair extensions put in for $10 each, with the salon donating the money to the charity of the Sassano family’s choice, said Susan Kaplan, whose daughter, Randi Kaplan, is one of the fundraiser’s organizers.
Dana Sassano of New City was ejected from the Toyota 4Runner she was traveling in with three Clarkstown South High School seniors after the SUV likely hit a patch of ice on Route 17A in Orange County on Dec. 29. The four teens were returning home after a daylong ski trip in New Jersey.
The fundraiser takes place until 7 p.m. this evening. Salon FX can be reached at 845-634-5151.
