WILMINGTON, NC (WECT)- A local hair salon hosted a benefit Saturday to raise money for the family of an 11 year old girl battling Leukemia.

All of the proceeds from Totally Xtravagant Hair Design's "Hair For Denise" will go towards Denise Hale and her family.

Later this month, Denise's 5-year old sister will be going with her to Chapel Hill as her bone marrow donor.

The event raised hundreds of dollars.

Wachovia banks are accepting donations at this time.
