CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Gentleman’s Barber Shop treated a few kids and their dads to haircuts, treats and an appearance by Spider-Man on Sunday.

They teamed up with A Special Wish to give the families some much-needed family time.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our wish dads and their sons to relax and get pampered for the day, especially before the big game¬†tonight. The Gentleman’s Barber Shop is a wonderful addition to our ‘Splashes of Joy’ program,” says Jason Beudert, the co-founder A Special Wish Foundation Cleveland.

The ‘Splashes of Joy’ program is for the children while they are still too unhealthy to travel. Once they are better, they get to go on their bigger wish, like Disney World or Disney Land.

A Special Wish is an organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children under the age of 21 who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening disorder.
