Be a hero for kids with cancer. St. Baldrick's Foundation 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. The goal this year is $240,000 and Fadó Irish Pub will donate 20 percent of all food sales during the event.
Nearly 400 people will have their heads shaved at the event at Fadó this year. Those shaving their heads will be enthusiastically cheered on by crowds of friends, family, doctors, nurses, children and others who have been touched by cancer in hopes to further awareness that pediatric cancer, the number one disease killer of children, is terribly under-funded.
Get involved and either shave your head, volunteer, eat or donate, but give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. Visit http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/132/2013 to learn how to be a shavee, support a team or donate in general.
Bottomless Stella Happy Hour Party: 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Enjoy bottomless glasses of Stella and enter to win prizes and giveaways. Nevermind the 90s takes the stage at 7 p.m. to rock guests down memory lane. Join us for a chance to win tickets to The Lost Weekend events and the sold out USA vs. Costa Rica game on March 22.
Kids being honored by the event:
Kohl B | Age 14 | Diagnosed September 2005 | In remission
Kohl was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma and it was all because of a football injury. Kohl took a hit from a football helmet to his right forearm. It just so happened that the helmet landed right on the tumor which caused it to swell up which lead to the diagnoses.
Kohl went through a bone transplant and a year’s worth of chemotherapy and is now cancer free.
Justin M | Age 9 | Diagnosed September 2006 | In treatment
In 2006, doctors gave Justin a 30 percent chance of being alive in five years. Justin has proved them wrong. He was only three when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Justin’s family is in the process of determining his next course of treatment.
Justin’s first choice of clothing is a suit which he says is “smart looking, classy and sophisticated.” Six years after diagnosis and four relapses, he faces each challenge with a relentless determination.
