in Port Washington hosted the St. Baldrick's Foundation "Shaving The Way To Conquer Kid's Cancer" on Saturday, March 10.
Shavees and their supporters showed up to raise awareness and funds for this cause dedicated to cancer research. Members of the , and the community were the heros of the day as they showed solidarity with children who are undergoing chemotherapy and treatments.
Dave Franklin, the emcee, reflected on the event.
"I would like to thank all the donors and volunteers who helped make the day a success," he said. "I won't know for sure how much we raised, since checks take longer to process and people can still donate online. In past years we've cleared the $20,000 mark several times and this year should be no different."
"If you see a freshly shaven head walking around town, please say, 'Thanks for their commitment and support,'" he said. "Thankfully this next week will be warm."
