My grandfather was already bald by the time he hit 50. Well, nearly bald, anyway… But I’d bet his hard-earned beer belly that he’d have shaved off the rest (and even forgone his toupee) for this great cause.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government, more than $12 million in 2009 alone. To date, over 106,000 volunteers have shaved their heads in solidarity with kids fighting cancer at more than 2,400 events in 50 states and 24 countries.
And tonight, St. Baldrick’s celebrates another hair-raising event at DeVere’s Irish Pub, Downtown Sacramento. With 170 shavees, they’ve already raised over $54,000. That’s accomplishment enough! But the team’s total goal is $75K, so let’s put our heads (and hearts) together and help make a difference. If you can’t make it to the event to watch the scalps revealed, donations of any amount are accepted at the link below.
