St. Baldrick's Update!

As you may recall, I'm once again having my head shaved in the fight against childhood cancer, benefitting CureSearch via St. Baldrick's Foundation. So far I've raised $627 from many generous donors--if you've already donated, you have my humble gratitude. But I'm still well short of my $1,000 fundraising goal. With a bit more of a push, though, I'm confident I can easily exceed that goal.

If you would still like to donate, there's still plenty of time! You can donate online with a credit card at my St. Baldrick's page; otherwise if you'd like to donate via personal check or cash, just email me and we'll make the necessary arrangements.

My shearing is scheduled for 12:45 PM on Friday, March 10th at Fado Irish Pub (100 W. Grand Ave. in Chicago). If you're going to be downtown that day, I'd love to have you stop by to share a pint of stout and a good laugh at my shiny-domed head. The event has always been quite enjoyable, and they have numerous excellent raffle and silent auction prizes (partial list here) throughout the day. Hope to see you there!
