The Big Hair Day

Toronto Transit Commission employee, Rocco Signorile decided the time had come! Challenged by Bob Kinnear, President of Local 113 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, to let go of his curly locks, Rocco surprised everyone when he accepted the challenge! Having grown his hair since childhood, Rocco waits for the “snip”, with Nancy Whiteford, co-chair of the United Way team at the TTC, Denise Bebenek from Meagan’s Walk, Rocco, Mario Barone, and Kathy Wyeth, Chairperson for United Way TTC. Rocco’s haircut appointment was a wonderful way to drum up support for Meagan’s Walk and the United Way. Rocco and his colleague Mario arose early some mornings, canvassing the colleagues in various divisions, encouraging interest in this most worthwhile project.

Glad it’s over, a smiling Rocco receives a Meagan’s Walk “hug” from Denise, who was touched by and appreciative of Rocco’s and his TTC colleagues’ generosity and this wonderful gesture of support.
