St. Baldrick's!

St. Baldrick's is an annual fund raising event of the National Childhood Cancer Foundation. The participants, male and female alike, volunteer to shave their heads in return for donations to the NCCF. These "shavees" do more than generate pledges and contribute to the playful atmosphere of an otherwise somber subject. Their shaved heads show solidarity with the children afflicted with cancer who often loose their own hair during treatment. Originating in the United States, St. Baldrick's is held close to St. Patrick's Day, often in Irish Pubs. This event was held at the Old Brogue Irish Pub in Great Falls, Virginia.
