HEROES SOUGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN HEAD-SHAVING EVENTS NATIONWIDE TO RAISE FUNDS FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH

Men, women and children baldly stand in solidarity with the 160,000 kids diagnosed with cancer each year while raising money to fund pediatric cancer research.

Berkley, Michigan/March 26, 2009
– The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has issued a lofty challenge to everyone who wants to help raise money for childhood cancer research: Be a hero for kids with cancer by shaving your head in return for pledges of financial support from friends and family.
Participants find that shaving their head in solidarity with the 160,000 children who are diagnosed with cancer each year is a small sacrifice in comparison to what these children endure, and want to raise money to help find a cure for children with cancer now and in the future.
Events will be held locally at The Berkley Front, 3087 W. 12 Mile Road, Berkley, Michigan 48072. The head-shavings will commence at 4:00 p.m. Heads will be shaved compliments of The Berkley Chop Shop. D.J. Del Villareal and the bands, The Streamliners and Trooper Thorn, will provide entertainment. There will be complimentary food, cash bar, and great raffle prizes. There is a recommended donation of $5 at the door.
