St. John’s University and its surrounding community will host its fifth annual St. Baldrick’s and Locks of Love’s benefit for children with cancer on Thursday March 20 at 1:45 p.m. 

This year’s donations have already exceeded $20,000 which adds to the total amount of over $100,000 donated by the St. John’s community surpassed since 2010.

Several St. John’s students and employees will have their heads shaved in front of a crowd of their peers for St. Baldrick’s including a record breaking nine women this year.

What:     St. John’s University Students to “Go Bald” for St. Baldrick’s;
              Donate Hair to “Locks of Love”

When:    Thursday March 14, 2014
              1:45 p.m.

Where:   St. John’s University, Queens Campus
              D’Angelo Center Living Room

Participants are asked to raise money for childhood cancer research with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, and as part of the effort, donating participants are asked to shave their heads in solidarity with the children who suffer from cancer. Along with this wonderful event, contributors also can participate in Locks of Love, a non-for-profit organization, that donates “locks” (hair 10 inches or longer) to be used to make wigs for children suffering from hair-loss diseases.
