St. Baldrick’s Shaves Heads to Fight Childhood Cancer


St. Baldrick’s began as a casual conversation between friends and has exploded into the world’s biggest volunteer-driven fund raising 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.

On Monday, March 10, Howard Margolies and his team of volunteers raised over $17,000 at Stout by collecting pledges and shaving their heads.

Some more shavings taking place at NYC bars this month:
