Thousands of shavees and volunteers will be moved to action after reading your personal experience with childhood cancer. Please take this opportunity to introduce yourself or your child to the St. Baldrick’s community.

Overview:
St. Baldrick’s began as a casual conversation between friends and has exploded into the world’s biggest volunteer-driven fundraising program for childhood cancer! In eight years, events have taken place in 18 countries and 46 US states, raising over $34 million, and shaving more than 46,000 heads.

What is St. Baldrick’s?
What is St. Baldrick's?St. Baldrick’s is the world’s largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. Thousands of volunteers shave their heads in solidarity of children with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family.

At a St. Baldrick’s event, something amazing happens. People who normally shy away from the very thought of childhood cancer find themselves compelled to support this cause after looking into the face of these brave children who are smiling broadly as their friends and family members proudly display their newly shorn heads.

Volunteers and donors see it can be fun to support a serious cause. Young cancer patients and survivors see how many people care. And researchers see St. Baldrick’s funds helping to find cures!

  • What’s happening now?
    The 2008 season is expected to be another fantastic year for raising funds to fight childhood cancer by shaving heads. This is the 9th year of St. Baldrick’s events, and the 4th year of existence for the independent St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

    In 2007, St. Baldrick’s events were hosted in 46 U.S. states, in addition to Argentina, Australia, Bermuda, Hong Kong, Ireland, Kuwait, Northern Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and more events are signing up daily as the movement continues to spread.

    Shavees and volunteers can participate in honor or in memory of kids who have fought, or are fighting, cancer. These children and teens give a face and a story to the cause, inspiring all to go the extra mile (or inch, in terms of hair!) in raising funds and awareness.

    Since the first event in 2000, St. Baldrick’s volunteers have raised over $34 million for life-saving research and 2008 promises even more exciting progress. Every child, teen, and family deserves our very best effort to cure childhood cancer, and that’s just what they’ll get from the St. Baldrick’s community!

Who’s involved?
Who's involved?Tens of thousands of volunteers make St. Baldrick’s happen, with the leadership of a board of directors and the support of a small staff. Volunteers organize each event, coached and equipped by the Foundation.

Thousands of brave, bold and bald shavees step up to be shorn year after year, becoming walking billboards for the cause of childhood cancer research!

Kids and families affected by cancer provide inspiration and meaning to the events. And local medical professionals who treat children and conduct research help donors to see how their donations are helping.

Generous corporate sponsors help cover costs, so a larger percentage of each individual’s donation is directed to finding cures for kids. The reinsurance industry has provided incredible support with firms often competing to show their support. Other groups heavily involved include fire and police departments, the insurance industry and schools.

Who will be the next group to get involved in a big way? How about yours!

In case you’re wondering, “St. Baldrick” is merely a fictional character – a morphing of “St Patrick’s” (the day the event was born), and “bald.” There is no real saint, but we do have a mascot, Lucky the Leprechaun!

Wu Tang Comes to Toad’s Place Richmond, VA

Friday January 18th 8:oopm
WuTang
Turning the standard concept of a hip-hop crew inside out, the Wu-Tang Clan were ass
embled as a loose congregation of nine MCs. Instead of releasing one album after another, the Clan was designed to overtake the record industry in as profitable a fashion as possible – the idea was to establish the Wu-Tang as a force with their debut album and then spin off into as many side projects as possible. In the process, the members would all become individual stars as well as receive individual royalty checks.
