Shave your head for a worthy cause

Guam - The fifth annual St. Baldrick's campaign is back and residents are invited to shave their heads for a worthy cause. Hosted by the Insurance Association of Guam, group secretary and treasurer Brent Butler says over $53,000 was raised last year, all of which benefit children with cancer.

This year's goal is a whopping $60,000, with Butler saying, "The easiest way to donate is to go the St. Baldrick's website that's stbaldricks.org and they can just make a donation to the event in general or if they know one of the shavees they can assigned that donation to that account. Or they can come to the event on Sunday and make the donation by either cash or check."

And some of the funds raised will stay here at home. Edward M. Calvo Foundation's Natalie Calvo says one Guam child and their parent or caregiver will also benefit from the funds raised. "It's used to pay for their airfare and their accommodations while they're getting treatment. So it's an annual grant up to $5,000," she explained.

If you would like to sign up as a "shavee" or want to donate to the charitable cause, visit StBaldricks.org. Sunday's shaving gets way from 10am to 1pm at the Guam Premier Outlets.
