Scott Harrington, the co-owner of the Postnet in Verona, and former Town Council member Jim Robbins are going bald in a fast way this weekend.
The two have pledged to have their heads shaved as part of a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which raises money for research into childhood cancer.
The foundation will host one of its signature head-shaving events at the West Orange Shillelagh Club on Saturday, September 21, at 3 p.m. (Harrington is the current president of the club). Dozens of men, women and even kids will have their heads shaved, many by John Terzo, the owner of JT’s Barbershop, who volunteers his time at the event every year.
The Shillelagh Club event has a goal to raise more than $500,000 in total donations for this fundraiser, which is in its seventh year. Admission is free but there will be a modest charge for food and beverages; shaves get pledges for their efforts. All of the of money collected goes to the St Baldrick’s Foundation. There will also be a raffle and silent auction. St. Baldrick’s has been encouraging local businesses to donate products or services for the raffle/auction, as well as food and beverages.
If you can’t be there, but want to support the event, there’s a donation page here.
