The 15th Annual Brown Baldies Fund Raising event is this week on Wednesday February 28 during extension time. This event raises funds to donate to the Newton Wellesley Vernon Cancer Center. Students and teachers alike will volunteer to shave their heads or donate 8 inches of hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. As we all know, the vast majority of folks in some way have been affected by cancer. The Brown Baldies simply shows that we are compassionate and willing to be somewhat uncomfortable for a couple of moments while attempting to create an environment that is supportive!! It is a small gesture that lets everyone now that they are not alone and that our community cares about what they are going through or have been through.
Please support this effort by sending in a dollar (or more) to be donated at the door of the gymnasium where the event takes place. We appreciate all donations and efforts to make this year’s event a great one!!!
