HORSESHOE BAY — With clippers in hand, the Scissortails Salon and Spa crew wants to help a friend out who is battling breast cancer.

The salon staff is donating 100 percent of the day’s proceeds to Rose, who is fighting breast cancer. To make an appointment or for more information on how to help, call (830) 598-4944.

“Kathy (Rose) is a good friend of mine and an incredible woman,” said Deborah Lowery, the owner of Scissortails. “She’s a single mother who is fighting breast cancer. Even though her insurance covers some of her treatment, Kathy still has to pay for a portion of it. And if she doesn’t pay for it, she doesn’t get it.”

Lowery and her staff are dedicating all the proceeds from the services of the salon and spa Feb. 13 to Rose and her fight against cancer.

“We’re just trying to help her out,” Lowery said.

Rose moved to the Highland Lakes in 2003. As a graduate of Texas Tech University’s Restaurant, Hotel and Institutional Management program, Rose continued to promote the coursework. She teamed up with Horseshoe Bay Resort to offer internships and housing for TTU students in their last year of the program.

“Kathy will be here greeting everybody, thanking them and giving them a hug as they walk through the door,” Lowery said. “We want to get a lot of people to come out. They can just donate or get a manicure or pedicure, anything because it’s to support this incredible woman.”

Lowery said people can call (830) 598-4944 or stop by the salon, 110 Par Three Court.

Texas Tech also has established a Restaurant, Hotel and Institutional Management  scholarship in Rose’s honor. People interested in donating to the scholarship should email Charlie Adams at
