LAFD, LAPD: The St. Baldrick’s head-shave event – a fundraiser managed locally by members of the LAPD and LAFD – returned to live and in person this year. The annual fundraiser was held virtually last year due to the pandemic.
The event was held May 21 at the Vineyards at Porter Ranch.
St. Baldrick’s invites to people to have their heads shaved and to raise sponsors for their endeavor. The event raises funds nationally to fight childhood cancers.
The event included a free breakfast, face-painting and rides for the family, live music, and more.
Councilmember John Lee and the Council District 12 office sponsored the event. This is the 20th annual local event; original Co-Organizers were Retired LAFD Capt. Waldie Brangham and Retired LAPD Lt. Greg Doyle. The 2022 event co-organizers were LAFD Capt. Danny Wu, Club Board Member, who took over in 2007, and LAPD Det. Nick Sinclair, who took over in 2015.
As of June 17, more than $36,000 has been raised for the 2022 event.
The Club has been an official sponsor annually.
Congratulations to all for another successful St. Baldrick’s event!
Special thanks go to LAFD Capt. Danny Wu and LAPD Det. Nick Sinclair for their assistance.
