St. Baldrick’s Foundation, one of the nation’s leading contributors toward childhood cancer research, returns to take our tresses at the ninth annual St. Baldrick’s Brave-A-Shave for Kids with Cancer.

A shiny, clean-shaven noggin’ isn’t such a bad look when it transforms you into an instant hero.

On Saturday, March 4, The Commons downtown will transform into a good ol’ fashioned barbershop for the event that buzzes heads towards a better, brighter future. From noon to 4 p.m., participants can step in, shave off those locks and make a donation to the foundation that’s raised millions for cancer research.

The head-shaving celebration generates awareness, funds research for childhood cancer and helps survivors live long and healthy lives all through the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

A $10 donation at the door will secure admission. A $20 donation at the door will hook you up with a t-shirt and raffle ticket. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the afternoon will go directly to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

The Commons is located at 901 Fourth Ave., downtown. For more information, visit
