St. Baldrick’s Head Shaving for Cancer

The weather was perfect so the heads of the 30 plus people who shaved their heads Saturday to support Pediatric Cancer research would not get cold… but maybe a little sunburned. Master of Ceremonies Nevada County Consolidated Captain Kevin Minet says that raising money for cancer research is the primary reason of the event, but there is also a secondary cause.

By the end of the day over 30 people were expected to shave their heads on the way to raising the goal of 20,000 dollars.

Captain Minet said next year he hopes to have KNCO’s Tom Fitzimmons participate.
