Nevada City, Calif. March 29, 2017 – 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 Ol’ Republic Brewery in Nevada City, CA on Saturday April 22, 2017, where more than 20+ shavees 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.
Last year we raised $13,134 with nearly 50 shavees participating.
The 2017 event will include entertainment from the Bleeping Bleeps, great local brews, and great food. There will be static fire engine displays, and this year’s event M.C. will be Dave Irons. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000. We have raised more than $6,000 so far and need your help! There are many ways to participate. Register as a shavee, create a team and challenge your friends, family, and co-workers, or just register to raise funds.
