Shaved Heads Means Successful Fundraising In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on March 10, 2013

The 10th Annual St. Baldricks event in Ottawa goes down as a success.

Organizer Rita Chovan says 47 thousand dollars was raised as of Sunday night with more money likely coming in between in-person and online donations.  She set a goal of 50 thousand dollars for the Jeremiah Joe’s fundraiser.

150 people shaved their heads Saturday including Chovan.  Each person raised money to fight childhood cancer.

There’s another St. Baldrick’s event this Friday Wallace Grade School and the next Friday at Jefferson Elementary in Ottawa.
