St. Baldricks Barbers 2016

On Saturday, March 12, 2016, we hosted our fifth annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation signature head-shaving event  to raise money for the national organization funding research to find cure for all childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.

Starting at noon, registered attendees shed their locks to support the fight against childhood cancers. Volunteers raised funds for St. Baldrick’s by soliciting donations from friends, family and anyone interested in contributing to the cause. Throughout the day, local barbers volunteered their time to give the haircuts.

Over the last four years, Rí Rá has raised more than $76,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and lifesaving childhood cancer research.
