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.
