Local Organization Shaving Heads & Raising Money for Childhood Cancer Research

Published

on

On Sunday, August 18th, a local organization called Lowcountry Bald will raise money for childhood cancer research with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest private funder for childhood cancer research. The event will be held at Butcher & the Boar in Mount Pleasant (730 Coleman Boulevard) from 2 pm to 6 pm.

Volunteers (“shavees”) raise money by agreeing to have their heads shaved bald at a public event to stand in solidarity with children that lose their hair during cancer treatment. For their brave sacrifice, shavees ask their friends and families for donations. Shavees sometimes form teams to involve friends and co-workers in raising money together.

This is the third year Lowcountry Bald has hosted this event and they’ve set a fundraising goal of $100,000. In their first year, 14 shavees raised $21,056. Last year, 40 shavees, including 7 women and 3 kids, raised $55,948.

Shavees and volunteers are still needed! Click here for more information.
