Well it was another successful St. Baldricks. This event is the Indiana Youth Hockey Association head-shaving event at the Carmel Ice Skadium that raised over…..wait for it….$54,000 big ones!

Kids and families gathered around to watch these brave souls go bald for St. Bald..ricks this year the electricity in the air was apparent.  This is an event that we support every year and have a blast doing it with the younglings on and off the ice as they raise money from all angles to donate to the well-needed pediatric cancer research, that (if I’m correct) gets about less goverment funding than most.

It’s a blessing to see these kids not only smiling and having fun with the crazy haircuts but learning how to sacrifice and go out of their comfort zone to help the less fortunate.  You can see the pictures on the Main Street Barber Shop Facebook page with the five best barbers in Indiana on the profile picture and just look how happy and proud these kids are to have jumped in to help.

You would have thought there was a celebrity there the way the crowd gathered around the event.  I love to write positive articles like this to give to you and I hope you not only enjoy but get involved with Saint Baldricks and help anyway you can. We do the event every year and hope to see you there next year!
