Jim's Story:
Four years ago a few guys met for a St.Paddy's day refreshment at Jim Brady's in NYC. Some wagering broke out which resulted in the three getting their heads shaved bald and the proceeds getting donated to the National Childhood Cancer Foundation. Coining the name St.Baldrick's, the tradition continued and last year raised over $2 million by shavees collecting donations in exchange for "taking it all off" on St. Patrick's Day. I did it last year and was astonished at the contributions made by friends and was proud of my simple sacrifice to the fight against childhood cancer.
This year, St Baldrick's offers "teams" the opportunity to participate (compete) in this fundraiser. What better way to promote team spirit than a bit of benevolent camaraderie. LYC Paddle Team is entered and challenges our worthy counterparts to offer up shavees and solicit funds for the NCCF (which will be working with the press to cover this event). Teams can register by calling Kathleen Ruddy(NCCF) at 800-458-6223(Ext.1642)
Please visit www.stbaldricks.org to learn more about the event and gather on St.Paddy's Day at Bradford's in Stamford, CT (or at any of the many locations countrywide).
I look forward to seeing your team on the website.
Game on!
Jim
