Thanks From St. Baldricks

A successful event:
  • Hard to believe with the snow that’s falling this evening that I’m sending out a thank you for the 2015 St. Baldrick’s event, hopefully none of the snow sticks. It seems like it was just a short time ago we sent out the first save the date message when the first snowfall of the season was coming down, let’s hope this is the last snow for the year.

    There are some checks and other late donations still being tallied but as of this writing the two CPD events had 171 shavees and volunteers who have raised over $80,000 to go towards funding research through the St. Baldrick’s Foundation!

    None of this is possible without the spirit and efforts of those who agree to have their heads shaved, or the tremendous volunteers who work tirelessly to organize the day to go as smoothly as possible, starting several months before the big day. Thank you one and all, I can’t possibly name everyone but especially want to say thanks to Anne Zamzow for again organizing the event at 025. And thank you SCC for your help in getting the word out as well.

    We are already making notes for how to improve for next year and will start getting the word out in September or October, but it will most likely be the Friday before or after St. Patrick’s Day again so start planning accordingly.

    On behalf of the children who are the direct beneficiaries of all of your generosity, thank you all for another successful event. And if you meant to make a donation and haven't yet, it's not too late. Just go to the St. Baldrick's site and search for the participant you wish to donate to, or pass it off to the person you are sponsoring

    Until we find a cure!

    Bill O’Reilly
Thanks to all who participated. A lot of domes out there need some waxing!

Kudos also go out to Bill OReilly for his efforts to support this event and SCC for their ever present support for ALL that is still honorable and worthwhile on the job. God Bless you, one and all!

I am glad so many officers do this. This event needs more publicity. I wish all the news outlets would spend as much time talking about St Baldrichs as they do about police brutality, etc.
