The fund raiser – which also will feature a silent auction and live music – 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 $50,000.00 for Henry’s Fund, and in July provided 50% of the funding for a research grant studying pediatric brain cancer treatments at St. Jude Hospital.

Volunteers can join a team or start their own team here.

Merchants who wish to help sponsor the event can call 843-476-4768 or email henrys1ups@gmail.com.
