Annual fundraiser fighting childhood cancers adds virtual tool for giving.
St. Baldrick’s head-shaving parties – a significant national charitable event for the LAFD and LAPD – have gone virtual for 2021. In normal times, St. Baldrick’s invites people to have their heads shaved bald, and to raise sponsors for their endeavor. The event raises funds nationally to fight childhood cancers.
A final virtual head-shave party to encourage giving remains. It’s scheduled for April 11. The party will be hosted by nationally known motivational speaking duo Matt Matkovich and Phil Januszewski from M&P Presentations LLC. Educators by day, motivational speakers by night, you’ll love the energy and excitement they’ll bring to your head-shaving experience.
