Start Growing Your Hair

It's almost time for the St. Baldric's fundraiser:
  • While everyone is busy thinking about the upcoming Holidays, please start thinking about St. Baldrick's Day as well. For those that don’t remember from last year, St. Baldrick's is an event that raises money for childhood cancer research, and over 90% of the money raised goes directly towards this research.

    St. Baldrick’s is an event where you offer to get your head shaved or if you have hair longer than 12” you donate that hair to be used for making wigs for childhood cancer patients, in return for pledges that are turned into research dollars. Chicago area hospitals and doctors have been direct recipients of funds from St. Baldrick’s and more information can be learned at www.stbaldricks.org . The CPD site for 2009 will be up and running soon.

    Last year was the first year CPD put a team together and despite a very short time frame, we raised over $77,000.00 which was outstanding, and I know we will do even better this year. The 2009 event will take place on Friday, March 6, 2009 so mark your calendars and start letting your hair grow, more details will follow.
So there's time to get a nice haircut for the Christmas pictures with Grandma, then start aiming for a trimming in March, just in time for spring.

SCC,

I got word after I sent you the original e-mail that it was approved to utilize three locations for St. Baldrick's this year.

After listening to last year's participant's ideas, we are going with the Academy again as the central location and Area 2 for those that live south and Area 5 for those that live north.

All three locations will be on the same date, March 6, 2009 and as soon as I get the web site up and running properly, I'll be getting instructions out as to how you can sign up.

Thanks again for the posting and for your help with St. Baldrick's.

Bill

what if I could make more pledges by NOT going bald? With hair I am bad enough. Bald may be too much for those around me.
