Rí Rá LAS VEGAS HOSTS ST. BALDRICK’S HEAD-SAVNG FUNDRAISER TO FIGHT CHILDHOOD CANCER MARCH 2

 

Rí Rá Las Vegas, located inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, hosts a head-shaving event on Saturday, March 3 to raise money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which funds the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. 

Starting at noon, registered attendees will shed their locks to support the fight against childhood cancer. Interested participants can register online to shave at Rí Rá or to donate time or money to the cause. Once registered, volunteers will raise funds for St. Baldrick’s Foundation by soliciting donations from friends, family and anyone willing to spare some change. 

Those who sign up to shave at Rí Rá will go bald March 3 at the pub. Local hairdressers will volunteer their time to give the haircuts, which will continue throughout the day. Those wishing to keep their hair can donate funds online and at the pub. During the event, guests will enjoy live music and other festivities.
