The haircuts continued as local barbers from The Art of Shaving volunteered their time to shave heads more than 30 heads throughout the day. During the event, guests enjoyed commentary from emcees and Guinness World Record holders Dave Browne and Dave Rooney of The Black Donnellys.

Since hosting its first signature head-shaving fundraiser in 2012, Rí Rá has raised more than $70,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and lifesaving childhood cancer research.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. St. Baldrick’s coordinates its signature head-shaving events worldwide where participants collect pledges to shave their heads in solidarity with kids with cancer, raising money to fund research. Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s has awarded more than $154 million to support lifesaving research, making the Foundation the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants.

St. Baldrick’s funds are granted to some of the most brilliant childhood cancer research experts in the world and to younger professionals who will be the experts of tomorrow. Funds awarded also enable hundreds of local institutions to participate in national pediatric cancer clinical trials, and the new International Scholar grants train researchers to work in developing countries.
