Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- People of all ages went bald this weekend to help make Las Vegas a better place to live for children battling cancer.
Volunteers shed their locks in support of the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
This is the 4th year in a row that New York-New York Hotel & Casino has hosted the head shaving fundraiser.
St. Baldrick's is a national charity whose sole purpose is to raise money to help find a cure for kids with cancer.
Saturday's event at New York-New York was just one of several across the Valley.
Since 2005, the St. Baldrick's Foundation has raised more than $100 million nationwide towards childhood cancer research.
The Las Vegas Wranglers hockey team is also raising money for St. Baldrick's.
After Sunday's game against the San Francisco Bulls, several members of the team will take the ice and have their heads shaved.
