Starting at noon, registered attendees will shed their locks to support the fight against childhood cancers. Those looking to make a bald statement can register online or on-site the day of the event. Once registered, volunteers will raise funds for St. Baldrick’s by soliciting donations from friends, family and anyone interested in contributing to the cause.
Brave the Shave for Kids with Cancer
On Saturday, March 12, those who have signed up for the St. Baldrick’s event will go bald at the pub. Throughout the day, local barbers will volunteer their time to give the haircuts. Those wishing to keep their hair can donate funds online or at the pub.
Over the last four years, Rí Rá has raised more than $76,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and lifesaving childhood cancer research.
