Local Volunteers Go Bald in Downtown Henderson, NC to Support Childhood Cancer Research April 9th, 2016

The 3rd Annual FOP/HPD St. Baldrick’s Day Event and 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 200 Breckenridge Street Henderson, NC on April 9, 2016, where more than 50 “shavees” will shave their heads in solidarity with kids with cancer and raise money for lifesaving research.

Every 3 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 $178 million to support the development of childhood cancer treatments that are as unique as every kid.

The 3rd Annual FOP/HPD St. Baldrick’s Day event will include, head shaving, Ronnie and Amy Shirley from Lizard Lick Towing, raffle prizes, 50/50 raffle, Cornhole tournament, Dunking Booth, Chris Leith monster truck, food, games and prizes.  

Raffle tickets can be purchased by calling 252-438-4141, tickets are $5.00 and you do not need to be present to win.

We have raised over $33,000.00 the past two years.  Please join us this year and help us achieve our goal of $10,000.00.  Every dollar helps!!!!
