Photos: Head Shaving Event At Docksiders

March 20, 2016

Over $150,000 was raised on Friday night as people volunteered to have their head shaved in exchange for donations in support of funding research to help find cures for childhood cancers.

The event was held at Docksiders, and served to support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. Government.

According to the event website, the event has raised $152,761 as of this writing, and proceeds raised from events in Bermuda will be managed by Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre to fund the SunSmart program and by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund life-saving research.
