BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The Avenue Viera announced the 10th Annual St. Baldrick’s Big Shave will take place virtually on Saturday, June 6 as every St. Baldrick’s Brevard team will be invited to join a ZOOM meeting to virtually shave their heads.
The ZOOM meeting information will be sent out to the teams one week prior to the shave.
If teams cannot make the shave, they may film themselves shaving their heads and send the video to Tom Neidert at firstname.lastname@example.org
“While COVID-19 has thrown us all for a loop, we are committed to supporting St. Baldrick’s and cheering on our teams who have worked so hard to be here” said Michelle Reyes, The Avenue Viera’s Marketing Coordinator.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to gather together, albeit virtually, and continue to raise money for such an important cause. We are especially grateful to our sponsors: Health First Hospital, Arnold Palmer Hospital, The Joint Chiropractic and Dental Care of Viera East for continuing to support St. Baldrick’s Brevard and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.”
The Big Shave raises funds for St. Baldrick’s Foundation by encouraging people to raise money to have their heads shaved at the event.
These teams collect essential funds for childhood cancer research while also spreading awareness and supporting kids who have lost their hair during treatment.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer and donor powered charity that funds pediatric cancer research. St. Baldrick’s is the top private funder of childhood cancer research grants in the United States.
They have awarded more than $282 million to support lifesaving cancer research.
An end of the year thank-you video will be created with the videos and sent out after the event to recognize the teams, staff and sponsors that made our fundraiser a success.
