St. Patrick's Day finds its home - where else? - in the Irish Channel! Jump start your week of Irish by participating in St. Baldrick's Day on March 12. Head to Parasol's (corner of Constance and Third) in the Channel to shave your head for a cure to children's cancer. In the past nine years, St. Baldrick's has become the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising program for childhood cancer. Help Parasol's in their goal to raise $10,000 this year!
St. Baldrick's is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. Thousands of volunteers shave their heads in solidarity of children with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family.

At a St. Baldrick's event, something amazing happens. People who normally shy away from the very thought of childhood cancer find themselves compelled to support this cause after looking into the face of these brave children who are smiling broadly as their friends and family members proudly display their newly shorn heads.

Volunteers and donors see it can be fun to support a serious cause. Young cancer patients and survivors see how many people care. And researchers see St. Baldrick's funds helping to find cures!
