March 17th marks the 12th Year Anniversary of the St. Baldrick's Foundation founding event at Jim Brady's located at 75 Maiden Lane.
FiDi residents and workers are invited to attend and help them surpass their event fundraising goal of $200,000 by registering to raise funds as a shavee or donating on behalf of your brave friends, family and colleagues shaving at Jim Brady's!
Over the past 7 years they have raised $2,558,715 at this event through the donations collected by 367 shavees. We hope they have another successful event in 2011!
In under ten years, St. Baldrick’s events have raised approximately $90 million, providing research grants to doctors and scientists at over 230 institutions to pursue the most promising new cures for childhood cancer and to help make clinical trials available to more children than ever. Since 2000, St. Baldrick’s has hosted more than 3,200 head-shaving events, shaving nearly 145,000 heads in 28 countries and 50 U.S. states.
At the event they will be having a silent auction as well as 50/50 raffles. If you or your company can donate a gift for our raffle/auction, they would greatly appreciate your support. All donations are completely tax deductible!
Come cheer them on this St. Patrick's day!
