Special ColumbiaMagazine.com story
Tomorrow several members of communities around the area will gather in Campbellsville University gymnasium to have their heads shaved to take part in the St. Baldrick's fund-raising event to raise funds the St. Baldrick's Foundation used to find cures for childhood cancer. The event takes place from noon-2pmET/11am-1pmCT, Saturday, March 15, 2008.
"St. Baldrick's," supporter Tara Burton writes, "is the larges volunteer driven fundraising event for children's cancer research." She writes,"Every year, thousands of volunteers join in the fight to find the cure for childhood cancer by donating their time, energy, and shaving their heads. Yes, completely bald. Shavees collect donations in honor of kids fighting the battle and all donations go to the Children's Oncology Group."
One of the kids in whose name donations are requested is Blane Bardin, Columbia, KY. Persons wishing to donate in his honor can go to the St. Baldrick's website and donate in his honor.
Brent Thompson, who works for Shoreline Communications at their WVLK 99.9 BigDawg in Campbellsville, is one of he shavees, and donations in his name can also be made at the St. Baldrick's website. You can write to him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Brent Thompson is married to Brandy Thompson, who is employed at the Dr. Phil Aaron Medical Center in Columbia. Brandy Thompson is asking everyone in Columbia to support the cause. "My husband Brent will be having his head shaved for St.Baldricks. This is an event that helps raise money for children with cancer," Brandy Thompson wrote. "He is raising money for a very worthy cause. Every penny counts so if you want to donate go to www.stbaldricks.org and type in the name Brent Thompson and it will pull up his picture. Please help us in raising money for children with cancer."
