Ottawa event raises $56,000

Posted by wlpo on March 20, 2011

150 people had their heads shaved to bring in $56,000 in the St. Baldrick’s fundraiser at Jeremiah Joe’s in Ottawa.

Rita Choven directed the annual fundraiser Saturday that raises money for childhood cancer.   Choven says with what was collected – and what’s yet to come in – she is amazed.

Girls as young as 11 and 13 years of age shaved their heads in support of young cancer patients in Ottawa Saturday.  Two more St. Baldrick’s events are still to come.  Muffy’s Tap in Ottawa this Saturday and in the Mendota Knights of Columbus March 30th.
