So Friday was an interesting night...

Both of my niece's took part in the annual
St.Baldrick's benefit to raise money for
researching childhood cancers. To show
support for kids that have to endure hair 
loss due to chemo treatments, the
participants agree to collect pledge
money and gather together one night
and have their heads shaved.


My first niece looks pretty confident. No problemo.
(Obviously she can't see the hairdresser's face behind her)

Uh oh, is that a tear I see?

(nervous laughter)...I'm O.K., I'm O.K....

Gah!! WHOLE head?!

My older niece. Oh Yeah, who needs all this hair anyway?


Good job ladies! This team raised $1900. towards the
cause and I didn't hear the overall totals, but last year
the town's total was over $12,000. All I know is there
are a lot of bald heads strolling around town right now.

WOW I told my cousin when she was going through her chemo i would shave my head and be bald with her... she would not let me ... so instead I had 22 inches of hair cut for locks of love!
how very cool and great job raising money!!!

This is a new one for me! Never heard of it . . . BUT I LOVE IT! My daughter Lydia donated a couple of feet of hair to love locks several years ago. Bravo to these young ladies!
