The Cause:

Have you ever considered saving someone’s life by shaving your head?

Now you can! Every year, thousands of brave men, women, and children have joined the St. Baldrick’s Foundation by giving up their locks to support childhood cancer research. I’d like to invite you to make a “bald” statement with us at Dillon's Irish Pub on July 24th 6 to 9 pm. You can raise funds and help fight the number one disease killer of children in the U.S. and Canada.

St. Baldrick’s events have raised approximately $149 million, providing research grants to doctors and scientists at more than 200 institutions to pursue the most promising new cures for childhood cancer, in addition to making clinical trials available to more children than ever. Since 2000, St. Baldrick’s has hosted more than 5,500 head-shaving events, shaving more than 243,000 heads in 28 countries and 50 U.S. states.

The Different Ways to Get Involved?

You can become a shavee! You can help to raise money by fundraising with your friends, family and colleagues to shave your head for cancer!


You can make a donation before or during the event to support kids with cancer!

However you wish to participate, everyone is invited to join the party! There will be plenty of food and drinks to go around as we support our friends and watch them shave their heads for cancer research! Register for the party soon as tickets will go fast!

Together, let’s Conquer Kids’ Cancer!
