St. Baldrick’s Day on Long Island is coming up. You heard it correctly; it’s not St. Patrick’s Day but another “holiday” that was put in place for a good cause. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation strives to raise money to fight childhood cancer by shaving people’s heads. The first St. Baldrick’s Day occurred on St. Patrick’s Day in 2000 in New York. The idea quickly spread across the country and only two years later in 2002, they celebrated shaving one million heads for cancer.
This is a great cause, and if you or someone you know would like to participate in St. Baldwick’s Day on Long Island, we’ve highlighted a few place on Long Island that are participating.
