Heads shaved in Ottawa Saturday

Posted by wlpo on March 15, 2014

   Shaving your head is one thing…would you shave your eyebrows?  Some did just that in Ottawa today to raise money for research into childhood cancer.

   Rita Chovan is the local organizer for the annual St. Baldricks event at Jeremiah Joe’s in Ottawa. Chovan estimates $43,000 was raised on line and in person by 120 shavees. Some took the shaving further than their head, says Chovan, including shaving their eyebrows for money.  Chovan said no one backed out of the fun-filled event.

    The Utica Fire Department is sponsoring their 7th “headshaving” for St. Baldricks on March 30th at Senica’s Oak Ridge. Doors open at noon. Chief Ben Brown says they’d like to raise 15,000. If you’d like to offer your head for shaving, contact the Department’s business office weekdays or go to st. baldricks dot org.
