One hundred percent of the profits will be donated to the St. Baldrick's foundation to support life saving research! Special thanks to Italian Pizza Kitchen for donating pizza lunch to the student "winners" whose names were drawn to participate in the head shaving on   Thursday, March 14.  

The RPD St. Baldrick's Shave Event will be hosted on Saturday, March 16 at 4:00 p.m. at the station, located at 103 E. Prospect Street. Online donations are still being accepted to support the Foundation's cancer research efforts.
