On November 17th, 2014, Tattoo Charlie’s will host their fourth annual Tattoos Against Cancer Benefit. All three studios will be doing cancer ribbon tattoos for charity. All proceeds will be donated to Meghan’s Mountain Charitable Foundation which benefits direct patient care for children and adults in our community. “Charlie, my dad, taught me the value of giving back to the community with the charity work he did.” says Buddy Wheeler, Tattoo Charlie’s son. “Meghan’s father Jerry and my dad were very close friends for decades. It is an honor to be able to give to their foundation in my dad’s name.”
In the last three years we have raised over $17,000 for Meghan’s Mountain from our events. This year we hope to have our biggest turnout yet and raise even more for this great cause.
The Preston Hwy studio will be open from 9am to 1am, the Dixie Hwy studio will be open from noon to 8 pm, and the Lexington studio will be open from 11am to 9pm. All studios will be tattooing on a walk in basis only, no appointments will be taken. All studios will have a page of awareness ribbons to choose from with a minimum donation of $30.
Jerry Steinberg, Meghan’s dad, of Meghan's Mountain will be present at our Preston Hwy. studio to greet and thank the community for helping Meghan light the mountains for the hundreds of cancer victims and their families that are being supported with this event. Coach Denny Crum will be present at the Preston Hwy studio signing autographs from 12:30-2:30pm. Coach Crum has been by Meghan’s side since her initial diagnosis in 2005 and has been a supporter of Meghan’s Mountain since its inception..
