From Natty Greene’s:
(GREENSBORO, NC) April 22,2017 –The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-powered organization dedicated to raising money for children's cancer research, will host one of its signature head-shaving events at Natty Greene’s Pub & Brewing Co. on April 22, 2017, where more than 40 will shave their heads to raise money for lifesaving research.
Every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer; one in five won’t survive, and those who do often suffer long-term effects from treatments too harsh for their developing bodies. Kids are special, and at St. Baldrick’s we treat them that way. From its beginnings, St. Baldrick’s has believed that kids deserve the chance to be kids – fun-loving, carefree, refreshingly honest, and always a little goofy – and deserve the chance at a future. That’s why donations raised at events like this have made it possible for St. Baldrick’s to fund more than $200 million to support the development of childhood cancer treatments that are as unique as every kid.
This will be Natty Greene's seventh year hosting a head-shaving event benefiting the St Baldrick's Foundation. Brave the Save 2017 will include a corn hole tournament, face painting, henna tattooing, giant games, music and a raffle! Local salon, Crop, will be our volunteer stylist again this year. There are more than 8 teams and 30 individuals participating in this year’s event including the Professional Firefighters of Greensboro.
