Carmel and other area residents held a St. Balrick’s Foundation event March 9 at Knights of Columbus on Indianapolis’s northside. The event had men, women and children shaving their heads to help fund a cure for childhood cancer. In 2012, St. Baldrick’s surpassed $100 million in grants for childhood cancer research. The team responsible for the event, Joey’s Team – Bald is Beautiful, is still accepting donations. To donate, visit www.stbaldricks.org and search “Joey’s Team.”
On March 8, Main Street Barber Shop held a St. Baldrick’s event for Team Dilts. Team Dilts raised over $22,000 and the event saw roughly 40 people shave their heads including the barbers. The Blackhawks, a IYHA Mite hockey team of 7 year olds, had their heads shaved before heading to the Carmel Ice Skadium for their championship game.
