When Chris Farrow, from the Ravenscroft School maintenance team asked us if "The Dude" could shave his head, our initial response was, "you know he only has 3 fingers right"? After Chris let us know that it was for such a great cause - The St. Baldrick's Foundation, we knew that it was time to practice his barbershop skills!
St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that focuses on driving research for childhood cancers and giving survivors long and healthy lives. We were humbled to find out that the maintenance team, along with a faculty team, and a student team from Ravenscroft School, right here in Raleigh, NC, were donating their time, money, and hair for such a great cause!
SchoolDude was happy to make an appearance this past Saturday, to support Ravenscroft and sponsor Chris Farrow, by having "The Dude" shave his head. The event was held at Saints & Scholars Irish Pub a great success! The location had an overall goal of $40,000, which was surpassed and they were able to raise nearly $55,000!
A wonderful outcome for an important cause. We were honored to be a small part of it. A special congratulations to SchoolDude client Ravenscroft for their amazing dedication to this cause! With over 45 shavees and participants among their 3 teams, the school was not only able to bring attention to this charity, but also raise an astounding amount of money for St. Baldrick's. Congratulations to all of you on a job well done!
