On Sunday, February 22, 2015, clients, parents, friends and supporters of the Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada will gather for the annual Family and Friends Shave Day to support St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest funder of childhood cancer research grants outside of the U.S. Government.
Because kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, friends and family can voluntarily shave their heads at this event to show support and inspire others to donate money to support research.
“This is a wonderful and touching event,” said Annette Logan, CEO of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “While we are gathering in support of childhood cancer research and doing all we can to raise funds for them, many are also shaving their head in honor of someone near and dear to them and it can be very emotional.”
The event kicks off at 2 p.m. at L’Oracle Gym, 7020 W. Warm Springs Road (Near Warm Springs & Rainbow), Suite 170, Las Vegas, on Sunday, February 22, 2015. Organizers have committed to a $25,000 fundraising goal on Family and Friends Shave Day. Last year, a total of $28,897.00 was raised at this event.
Donations are gladly accepted and the public can easily support those individuals or teams who have already committed to have their heads shaved. Go to http://bit.ly/LasVegasHeadShave to make a donation, or call (888) 899-2253.
