Houstonians shaving their heads to raise money for St. Baldrick's Foundation, childhood cancer research
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houstonians are shaving their heads to raise money for childhood cancer research.
More than 70 people registered to be shaved Sunday at the Goose's Acre Bistro and Irish Pub in The Woodlands.
It was one of three events scheduled around town this week. Another was held Saturday in Rice Village. If you missed these events and want to help, another is slated for March 16 at Stats Sports Bar and Grill, 10850 Louetta Road in Houston. Even if you don't want to shave your head, you can donate to the cause. For more information, click here or call 281-257-8287.
The goal with these events is to raise more than $80,000 for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. According to the organization's website, the St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.
