Bald for Baldrick’s cancer research

Posted on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 2:40 pm

Seven men and women shaved their heads to raise money for childhood cancer research at the St. Baldrick’s event at Montross Moose Lodge 2333.

Ahead of a head-shaving event, shavees set a fundraising goal and seek donations to meet it. If they raise the money, or even if they don’t, they shave their hair and the proceeds go to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a non-profit organization.

In addition to raising over $1,000, Calvin Grizzle, one of the event organizers, shaved his beard then his mustache to draw more money from the crowd. He also received an on-the-spot donation from the Sons of the American Legion Post 148, who rode from Colonial Beach to present the check.

Cathy Caldwell, a Moose Lodge member, came to support but after seeing others get shaved, she decided to cut her hair. She raised $125 from the crowd within 15 minutes and hopped into the barber’s chair.
