All proceeds of the event support the Patient Relief and Cancer Care Funds, established to provide financial assistance to local patients receiving care at the Kingsbury Pavilion who have difficulty covering daily living costs like gas, heating fuel, and groceries. Funds raised through Bald is Beautiful allow the Kingsbury Pavilion to extend its reach of care beyond the hospital walls, where the real healing begins. In addition, donations allow the purchase of vital equipment for the Kingsbury Pavilion, such as television monitors for chemotherapy infusion chairs, blanket warmers and other items. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Sponsors include: CVS Pharmacy, MJD & Co Hair design, Savings Bank of Walpole, and Paul Mitchell Northern New England.
