On Saint Patrick's Day, Los Angeles City Fire and Police Personnel will be participating in their fourth annual combined Saint Baldrick's Event. Participants, or "Shavees" as they are known, will be collecting pledges from friends and family in exchange for shaving their heads. The bald heads signify solidarity with the child victims of cancer, who often lose their hair while undergoing treatment. All money raised goes to the Saint Baldrick's Foundation, and is distributed to doctors and other researchers on the front lines of the war on childhood cancer.
Participants and helpers are needed to staff this event. If you are able to help, please contact LAPD, Sergeant Greg Doyle at 818-778-4752 or LAFD Captain Waldie Brangham at 805-857-0779. If you would like to be a shavee, you can sign up at www.stbaldricks.org.
