Head-shaving event to raise funds for childhood cancer research
The Knitting Factory Concert House in Boise, Idaho, will host a St. Baldrick’s Foundation head-shaving event to raise funds and awareness for lifesaving childhood cancer research on Saturday, March 9. With a goal of raising $75,000 more than 150 participants have registered to shave their heads to support the Foundation’s mission to Conquer Childhood Cancers.
This event marks the 9th year of the Boise community shaving away at childhood cancer. This year’s event will feature shavees such as Ella, a 9-year-old girl who has raised over $3,000 for St. Baldrick’s and will be shaving with her team of Roosevelt Elementary School students.
The event starts 11 a.m. at 416 S. 9th Street in downtown Boise on Saturday, March 9.
Donations can be made by calling 888-899-BALD or going to www.stbaldricks.org/teams/mypage/81988/2013.
