St. Baldrick's Day 2014

St. Baldrick's Day is coming!

How much money would it take to shave your head? What if all that money went to making a difference in the lives of children battling cancer? That’s what St. Baldrick’s Day is all about—going bald for a good cause.

Every year, we gather the community for a one-day event that brings together teams of people willing to shave their heads bald as a sign of solidarity with children who are fighting cancer. All participants, which include local businesses, schools, politicians, de Vere’s patrons, and even plenty of women, raise money in support of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, then congregate at de Vere’s Irish Pub (Midtown Sacramento and Davis) to shave their heads. And yes, we’re talkin’ buzzed bald!

Davis St. Baldrick's Day: March 8, 2:30-5pm

Sacramento St. Baldrick's Day: March 10, 5:30-8:30pm

Meet Our Father-Daughter St. Baldrick’s Shavees!

One of the things we love most about St. Baldrick’s Day is the outpouring of support that comes from our communities. One very special instance of that is this awesome father-daughter duo that will be shaving their heads together to raise funds for childhood cancer.

Meet Stewart and Victoria Savage from Davis. Stewart is the Executive Director of Davis Downtown, and, along with his daughter, is championing a big effort to raise funds for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

“Fighting cancer in children and young adults is important for both of us,” say Stewart. “For me, it means that I am helping families enjoy a few more precious moments together. For my daughter, it means that she and her friends will have a greater opportunity to grow up and experience all that life has to offer.”

Both Stewart and Victoria will be shaving their heads at our Davis Pub on March 13th—but in the meantime, they need your help!

We encourage you to make a donation to their fundraising pages to show your support!
 
Visit http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/stewartsavage  to donate to Stewart or http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/victoriasavage  to donate to Victoria.

Of course, they would love to have you cheer them on as they have their heads shaved, too. Come to de Vere’s Davis and see them get buzzed for a great cause! The action starts at 5pm.

Cheers to Stewart and Victoria!

Meet Zoe: An Inspiring St. Baldrick's Shavee!

Meet Zoe! She is 5 years old and childhood cancer SURVIVOR! When Zoe heard there was a St. Baldrick’s event in Davis, she told her mom that she HAD to shave her head!

Zoe was diagnosed with a very very rare form of Leukemia, which was considered a fatal disease 20 years ago. But now, with the new research found for her type of cancer, her doctors were able to treat her to save her life!

Please help support Zoe by donating to her page and coming out to de Vere's in Davis on March 15th and cheering her on! Her mom will be there to say a few words about how important and meaningful St. Baldrick's research means their family--you won't want to miss it!
