Every year, throughout the month of March, Suffolk County residents shave their heads in an effort to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which was created in 2000 to support research for childhood cancers. They also aid in finding less invasive treatments for those with cancer.
Last year, fundraisers in Suffolk County alone raised $500,000.00. Events will be held throughout Suffolk County this year from Napper Tandy's Irish Pub in Northport to Tommy's Place in Rocky Point. The Connetquot School District will be joining in this year as part of the Fox network's "FOX School Challenge" that encourages kids to help kids.
The St. Baldrick's Foundation funds 230 children's oncology groups, research institutions and medical centers across North America. One hundred percent of the proceeds from these fundraisers go toward the foundation to support its cause.
The event at Tommy's Place will be held on March 8, 2008, at 7:00 p.m. To find other event dates and times, and to get further information, you can call 1-888-899-2253 or visit http://www.stbaldricks.org/ and click on "find an event".
