• St. Baldrick’s

  • Since 2007, our annual Cancer Fundraiser has been a heartwarming display of
    solidarity and support for the St. Baldrick's Foundation in the fight against
    childhood cancer. Building on the remarkable success of past fundraisers, we
    eagerly anticipate the annual head-shaving extravaganza at The Shillelagh Club.
    Having surpassed an incredible $1.25 million milestone in donations during the
    2023 event, we are more determined than ever to continue our efforts to
    eradicate all Childhood Cancers.

    With childhood cancer remaining a leading cause of death among children in the
    United States, the significance of initiatives like St. Baldrick's cannot be
    overstated. With only a fraction of federal cancer research funding allocated to
    pediatric cancer research, the foundation's grants play a pivotal role in advancing
    the battle against this devastating disease.

    Our annual event is a day filled with camaraderie, entertainment, and generosity.
    Attendees can look forward to a diverse lineup of activities, including live music
    performances, face painting, bagpipers, Irish Step Dancers and an array of
    delicious food and beverages. Additionally, a raffle and silent auction will offer
    opportunities for further fundraising, with local businesses encouraged to
    contribute products, services, and financial support.

    The call to action extends to all members of the community: become a shavee,
    volunteer, or make a donation to support the noble cause. By joining forces with
    the St. Baldrick's Foundation, The Shillelagh Club and our immediate and
    extended community have the power to make a meaningful difference in the lives
    of children battling cancer and pave the way for a future free from its grip.
    As the St. Baldrick's Foundation continues its tireless pursuit of funding the most
    promising research, its commitment to ensuring that childhood cancer survivors
    lead healthy, fulfilling lives remains unwavering. With each dollar raised and each
    shaved head, the community moves one step closer to realizing the dream of a
    world without childhood cancer.
