Salon to hold cut-a-thon for widow of murdered Lexington Marine

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - When tragedies like Marine Jonathon Price's murder happen others hear the call to help.

His wife Megan was also injured when that robbery turned violent early last weekend.

The couple had been married less than a year.

In the wake of this tragic event, Megan Price's co-workers are planning to honor the couple for being a cut above the rest.

"We are family here. We are a very tight bunch, including next door," said Alyssa Holland who works at Posh Salon.

When last weekend's tragic news spread, Megan Price's work family at Posh Salon and Spa in Lexington couldn't believe it.

Their co-worker injured. Her husband killed. All after a seemingly random robbery.

"We are just very tight we love her. We are all family here, and that is beyond important to us," said Holland.

In a fitting tribute, Price's co-workers at Posh and friends from Prince Cuts Barber Shop next door will hold a cut-a-thon on Sunday.

"A cut-a-thon. All it is taking our regular prices, services and discounting them to get more people involved in here with Meghan so we can support her in this time of need," said Holland.

They'll use their scissors, clippers, and skills to raise money for Megan Price.

"We felt like this is just a small thing that we can help benefit her and raise money by donating some of our time and really try to help make a difference," said Billy Pollett with Prince Cuts Barber Shop.

A difference for a friend and loved one who lost her husband who was only 26 years old when he was gunned down.

"She came in today and we all gave her hugs and kisses and told her how much we loved her. We joked around with her she got her hair done so of course she looked great," said Holland.

Yellow Cab of Lexington also joined the campaign to help Price.

The taxi company donated a dollar for every ride Friday and Saturday to the fund at Posh Salon.

Also during the cut-a-thon on Sunday, there will be a silent auction to raise money for Megan Price.

Some of the items that will be auctioned have already been donated.
