Third time's a charm

Nine-year-old Katalina Garber of Pleasanton had 10 inches of her hair cut June 17 to donate to Locks of Love, the nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to children suffering from long-term medical hair loss. "It's for a good cause for kids who need it," Katalina said. This was the third time Katalina shed her locks for the cause, and each time stylist Susana Cruz did the trim at Image Salon. Katalina, the daughter of Virginia and Jim Garber and a student at Fairlands Elementary, has inspired two other members of her Girl Scout troop to consider growing their hair for the cause, too.
