Albany -- Spreading breast cancer awareness and good hair days went hand in hand today at Mack's Salon.

The business sponsored its first "Power of Pink" event to raise money for the nationwide "Young Survivors Coalition." That's a non-profit breast cancer awareness group that targets detection for women 40 and younger.

Many businesses donated food and items for a raffle.

Organizers say it was all for a good cause."Women don't realize how much it impacts your life. My mom is a survivor of cancer she's had cancer two times so this is very important to me," said Jason Nelson.

The goal was to raise more than $2,500 for the Young Survivors Coalition.
