‘Brave the shave’ event July 25


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 Son Of Thurman restaurant on Saturday, July 25.

More than 100 people will “brave the shave” in solidarity with kids with cancer and raise money to conquer childhood cancers, organizers say.

This event, in honor of many local children and families affected by childhood cancer, will be held in conjunction with the “Blast From The Past” car show along Sandusky Street and will also feature many family-friendly activities and games, a raffle and a silent auction.

This will be the second year for this event in downtown Delaware. Last year, nearly 60 people had their heads shaved, raising more than $32,000.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives, organizers say.
