Locals shave heads to help kids with cancer

St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-driven charity dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research, will host one of its signature head-shaving events at Tim Finnegan’s Restaurant & Pub near Metrocenter Mall from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 8.

Men and women from MiniCo and other local businesses including OpenTech Alliance and the U-Haul Self Storage Affiliate Network will shave their heads in solidarity with kids with cancer and raise money to conquer childhood cancers.

“We understand that shaving your head may not for everyone,” says Poppy Behrens, event coordinator and publisher at MiniCo Insurance Agency LLC. “There are other ways that you can be involved. You can sign up as a volunteer, attend the event where Tim Finnegan’s will donate all proceeds from the St. Baldrick’s Buffet to the foundation, participate in our raffle or silent and live auctions, set up a fundraising page or make a donation on behalf of a participant.”

One raffle on the day of the event will be for a vintage Schwinn Stingray bicycle.

In addition, Wigs for Kids will be on hand for those who wish to donate their hair—even if they just want it cut, not shaved. Also on hand will be the Phoenix Police Department SWAT Team and the Phoenix Fire Department with their trucks and gear on display. Special children’s activities will include face painting, a coloring table, and an opportunity to make cards for kids with cancer.

Tim Finnegan’s is located at 9201 N. 29th Ave. For more information, visit www.stbaldricks.org/events/TimFinnegans or call 602-321-7708.
