St. Baldrick’s headshaving fundraisers 2017 to fight kids’ cancer, Hilton Head Is. & Savannah

Monday, February 27th, 2017

You have two chances to take part in St. Baldrick’s headshaving fundraisers, one on Hilton Head Is. & a second in Savannah.

_____________________________

Hilton Head St. Baldrick’s headshaving fundraiser, March 18

Mellow Mushroom of Hilton Head Island will host the sixth annual St. Baldrick’s headshaving fundraiser on Sat. March 18 2017, 3-5PM.

Joe DiNovo of Joe’s Barbershop will lead the team of barbers shaving the heads of the Hilton Head area men, women and children, encouraging the community to support their action by making donations to their team.

In addition to the headshaving, the event will feature a silent auction and live music.

The fundraiser is organized by Terry and Cynthia Cermak, who started the event in honor of their son Henry.

In 2013, St. Baldrick’s created a Hero Fund in his name: the Henry Cermak Fund for Pediatric Cancer Research. The Cermak’s headshaving events have raised over $110,000.00 for Henry’s Fund, and provided 50% of the funding for a research grant studying pediatric brain cancer treatments at St. Jude Hospital.

This year, the goal is to surpass $125,000 in total donations for Henry’s Fund.

Anyone can join a team or start their own team here. There are many ways for volunteers to raise funds without shaving their heads. Merchants who wish to help sponsor the event can call 843-298-2775 or email henrys1ups@gmail.com.
