TUCSON, Ariz. -- A Tucson salon and a barbershop Tuesday pampered Tucsonans to raise money to help those living with AIDS.

All proceeds and tips went toward Tucson Interfaith HIV AIDS network's programs.

Robert Markley Salon Spa and Robert's Barber lounge were the two businesses making the generous donation between 4 and 8 Tuesday.

"We partner with a local organization and we donate all of our proceeds from styling and doing peoples hair massages and body work to whatever cause we promoting that month," said Christa Boekhoaff from Robert Markley Salon & Spa.

The services done Tuesday included hair cuts, massage, waxing and mani-pedis. Tihan is the largest privately-funded provider of support services for people living with HIV/AIDS in Arizona.
