The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-powered organization dedicated to raising money for children's cancer research, will host one of its signature head-shaving events at 9 Irish Brothers on October 15, 2017, where many will shave their heads to raise money for lifesaving research.
Every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer; one in five won’t survive, and those who do often suffer long-term effects from treatments too harsh for their developing bodies. Kids are special, and at St. Baldrick’s we treat them that way. From its beginnings, St. Baldrick’s has believed that kids deserve the chance to be kids – fun-loving, carefree, refreshingly honest, and always a little goofy – and deserve the chance at a future. That’s why donations raised at events like this have made it possible for St. Baldrick’s to fund more than $200 million to support the development of childhood cancer treatments that are as unique as every kid.
The 4th annual event will include… live music from Celtic rock band Highland Reign and a large raffle with several prizes donated by area businesses! There are also many more surprises currently being planned.
In our first three years, we have had over 60 people shave their head, and we have raised more than $33,000 to fight childhood cancer.
