I'll admit that despite being four U.S. presidents removed from high school I can sometimes be susceptible to peer pressure. This has led to some rather unfortunate fashion and grooming choices in the past (hello, ironic Hawaiian shirts).
That's why it seems appropriate that at and have pushed me to participate in Frankfort's St. Baldrick's Foundation fundraiser Sunday, March 25, at . The event, which is being organized by the Frankfort Police Department, has a goal of $10,000, and it's about halfway to it.
My goal is to raise at least $250 for the charity that helps fund cancer research for children. If I reach that goal, I will go from redheaded to bald-headed. And if I hit just $100, I will shave off my facial hair.
Interested in helping out? Here's how you can get involved:
- To donate: Go to my donation page on the St. Baldrick's website to contribute.
- To volunteer: You also can sign up to participate in the event as a "shavee" or a volunteer at the foundation's website.
I'll be posting updates on Frankfort Patch and the site's Facebook page.
