OVER 100 MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN GET BALD TO RAISE MONEY FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH AT AMALFI’S March 12, 2011

It Takes a Bald Statement to Conquer Kids’ Cancer

More than 100 men, women and children are expected to shave their heads bald to show solidarity to children with cancer and to raise money for childhood cancer research on March 12th  at Amafi’s in Lawrenceville (11am-7pm).

 

Those shaving their heads will be enthusiastically cheered on by crowds of friends, family, doctors, nurses, children and others who have been touched by cancer to further raise awareness to the fact that pediatric cancer,

the number one disease killer of children, is terribly under-funded.

 

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation raises money and awareness globally for childhood cancer research through volunteer-driven events that pair great fun with this worthy cause. At these events, participants shave their heads in front of cheering supporters to experience themselves one of the most stigmatizing public aspects of cancer- losing one’s hair from chemotherapy treatment and to raise money to Conquer Kids’ Cancer.

 

Last year our Lawrenceville event had 64 shavees & we raised over $64,000.00!  Please come out & support us again this year. 

Donations can be made online at: http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/Amalfis

 

When:            Saturday, March 12th 11am-7pm

Where:            Amalfi’s Restaurant in Lawrenceville, NJ
