The 2014 Pepperell St. Baldrick's event was a big success. Fifty-five people were shaved.
On behalf of St. Baldrick's and our family, we would like to thank the Pepperell Free Press for promoting our event and those who did the shaving, Joe Lisio and Kyle Belair from Patriot Barber of Pepperell, Mark Laviolette from Yankee Clipper, Maryann Fjeld Wilkins and Tobi Rose from Salon Bliss.
Thank you to Dunkin' Donuts, Donelan's, C & S Pizza and Firehouse Subs of Nashua for their food and refreshment donations, and Simards Laundromat for their donation of balloons.
Some of the raffle prizes were donated by local businesses including The Bronze Bell, Lorden Hardware, Pepperell Family Pharmacy, PET-icure, Hannaford's of Townsend, Bailey's Bar and Grille, Gibbet Hill Grill and a group from Pepperell called "Helping Hands Hoping To Heal Hearts."
So far we have raised approximately $28,000, with donations still coming in.
It is not to late to donate. People can still donate on the website http://www.stbaldricks.org or by calling 888-899-BALD.
Thank you to all who participated, donated and attended. Hopefully, some day, there will not be a need for us to have these events.
