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 tndart47@yahoo.com

“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.
