St Baldrick's Thank You
A final thank you to everyone:
- St. Baldrick’s 2010 was a GREAT success! Thanks to every one of you that participated, volunteered, and helped get the word out, 300 brave members, family members, and friends of the CPD ranging from 16 months to 78 years old got their heads shaved. While the final tally won’t be in until all the checks and cash are posted to each participant’s web site, the preliminary numbers show we raised over $110,000!!!! This money will go directly to hospitals, research facilities, and doctors that concentrate on finding a cure for childhood cancer and tops last year’s total of $98,822.
This event could not have taken place without the many volunteers, both CPD and others who gave up their time and offered their talents to make the event such a success so thank you one and all, especially the beauticians who gave up their day to cut so many heads of hair. There’s no way to list all the people who helped out without accidentally omitting someone but I would like to especially thank Anne Zamzow who coordinated the Area 5 event and Bill Murphy and Lee Bielicki who coordinated the Area 2 event. The groups they put together at each of their locations did an outstanding job!
Thanks again SCC for helping to get the word out and to all who had a part in the success of this event. The children who suffer from this horrible disease are all a little better off today because of your efforts. I’m certain that we will be holding this event again next year so mark your calendars now for either March 11th or 18th and we’ll let you know more as the date approaches.
Until there’s a cure,
A lot of drafty skulls out there, just in time for the spring snowfall. But all for a good cause.
