St. Baldrick’s Day – Fight Childhood Cancer

Mar 6, 2014   //   by Brian Jones   //   Blog, Events, Featured, News  //  No Comments

It’s that time of year again – St. Baldrick’s! Once again, we shave our heads for two important reasons: 1) to show our solidarity with the kids undergoing treatment that lose their hair, and 2) to raise money for the fight. This will be my 14th year shaving my head and organizing the event.

Our event will once again be at the Deutsches Haus on 29 March. If you would like to join us as a shavee, organizer or just want to cheer us on, we’d love to have you there.

If you can, please click the link below to sponsor me in this endeavor. Anything you can do is greatly appreciated. If you would like to see exactly what Saint Baldrick’s does, you can go to www.stbaldricks.org

Thanks in advance!
