San Diego’s 6th Annual St. Baldrick’s Shave-a-Thon for Childhood Cancer Research

San Diego’s 6th Annual St. Baldrick’s Shave-a-Thon Officially Kicked Off!

This year’s Shave-a-Thon will be held on Saturday, March 1st at The Commons downtown from 12-4 pm. The event is anticipated to be the best one yet with both the La Mesa and El Cajon Police Departments attending to shave their heads in support of childhood cancer research.

San Diegans are invited to join the public on Saturday, March 1 to support this fundraising event and generate awareness about funding for childhood cancer research.

Last year’s fifth annual event was an overwhelming success with over 60 heads shaved and a packed house of over 150 supporters and a total of over $30,000 raised. This year, we have set the bar even higher with a goal to raise $50,000.

Over 60 heads were submitted to the clippers and included men and women who helped raise over $30,000. Organizers said that in the past five years they’ve raised $130,000 in total, and hope to raise $50,000 this year. Attendance is expected to double this year in support of this cause as well as help survivors live long and healthy lives.

Head shaving will start at 12:30pm and will be performed by sponsor The Factory salon.  A $10 donation a the door gives you admission to the event, complimentary appetizers and drink specials.

For a $20 donation you’ll get  the above plus a T-shirt and a raffle ticket. All proceeds benefit St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

The Commons is also creating three special menu items and will donate $1 from the sales. A signature handcrafted cocktail will be featured throughout the month of March, with a portion of the proceeds going direction to the Foundation.
