The Rooftop Bar at Poseidon will host the eighth annual St. Baldrick’s headshaving fundraiser on Friday, March 8 from 6-9 p.m.
Joe DiNovo of Joe’s Barbershop will again lead the team of barbers shaving the heads of the Hilton Head area men, women and children, encouraging the community to support their action by making donations to their team.
In addition to the headshaving, the event will feature a silent auction, and live music by Cranford Hollow. A portion of the evenings drink proceeds will go directly to St. Baldrick’s. Tito’s Vodka will also be sponsoring the event.
The fundraiser is organized by Terry and Cynthia Cermak, who started the event in honor of their son Henry. In 2013, St. Baldrick’s created a Hero Fund in his name: the Henry Cermak Fund for Pediatric Cancer Research. The Cermak’s headshaving events have raised over $145,000.00 for Henry’s Fund, and have supported research grants for pediatric brain cancer treatments at St. Jude Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. This year, the goal is to surpass $175,000 in total donations for Henry’s Fund.Anyone who wants to raise funds can join a team or start their own team at: stbaldricks.org/events/henrys1ups2018.
There are many ways for volunteers to raise funds without shaving their heads. Merchants who wish to help sponsor the event can call 843-298-2775 or email [email protected]. For more information about St. Baldrick’s go to StBaldricks.org.
