St. Baldrick's Day 2005
In the search for a cure for childhood cancer, volunteers
shaved their heads at the event dubbed St. Baldrick's Day. The buzz-cutting
marathon in South Bend, IN, which occurred Thursday, March 17, at
Rocco’s Style Shop on N. Ironwood Dr. in South Bend, Indiana, coincided with
St. Patrick’s Day.
“Baldness can be drafty, but it’s a visible reminder of the sacrifices cancer families make,” said Chuck Bueter, an organizer of the local event.

12,500 children are diagnosed with cancer, which remains the number-one disease

primary beneficiary of the monies raised via St. Baldrick’s Day Celebrations
is the CureSearch National Childhood Cancer Foundation. Preceding 2005, over
8,000 shavees – including 400 women – have shaved their heads for the
international event, raising a total of $7 million dollars.
