Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
American Bancard, LLC will be participating in the 5th Annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation charity event at Slainte Irish Pub in Boynton Beach, FL this Friday. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any other organization except the U.S. government. American Bancard is proud to be an active participant in the charity’s head-shaving fundraiser, and considers this to be the first of many that the company will contribute.
American Bancard is one of ten teams raising funds for the event at Slainte’s on March 16th, with a multitude of participants and volunteers prepared to give their time and monetary contributions to such a meaningful cause. Last year, St. Baldrick’s donors and volunteers made possible more than $21 million in funding for childhood cancer research grants, pushing total research funding to an all-time high.
One of the 150 shavees signed up for the event happens to be American Bancard’s CEO, Sam Zietz. "Giving back to our local community, especially helping families with sick children is something we’ve always felt is paramount to all functions of our business. We are honored to be participating in the St. Baldrick’s event, and strongly support the foundation and its efforts in children’s cancer research. We are hoping to see the event exceed its fundraising goal, and I’m well prepared to make a very personal donation, by shaving all the hair on my head!"
At press time, Slainte Irish Pub had already surpassed its goal for donations by 88%.
