St. Baldrick’s weekend

Posted by wlpo on March 20, 2011

One hundred fifty people didn’t lose their head Saturday at Jeremiah Joe’s in Ottawa – just their hair. Rita Choven is chairperson for the annual St. Baldrick’s head shaving in Ottawa. St. Baldrick’s raises money to help research and end childhood cancers. Choven texted our Jeremy Aitken that she was very pleased with the results and has estimated the group raised at least 56-thousand dollars Saturday. That’s a preliminary total.  Seneca’s Oak Ridge is hosting its’ own St. Baldrick’s event at 2pm Sunday.  Eight fire and /or ambulance crews are participating including Magnolia, Spring Valley, Utica, LaSalle and Oglesby.
