From stylist Emily Austin at Shanti Salon and Spa:
I am proud to announce that I am heading up West Seattle’s first St. Baldrick’s head shaving event! This is a fundraiser for childhood cancer research: The St. Baldrick’s Foundation – a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.
Mind Unwind Art Gallery is graciously partnering with us and hosting the event. The event is Saturday, March 29th from 6-8, or until the last head is shaved.
Get involved and you’ll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. For donation information or to sign up to get your head shaved, please visit St. Baldrick’s Website.
While the head shaving is a big part of it, there will also be many other ways to support local shavees who will be asking for sponsors to help them reach their fundraising goals. We will also accept donations at the door, as well as add on a few last minute shavees.
We are thrilled to be getting this incredible event started here in West Seattle and hope that it will grow exponentially in years to come.
