$27,000 To Date Has Been Raised During the 7th Annual Bald Is Beautiful

May 15, 2015
Keene, NH

The Norris Cotton Cancer Center Kingsbury Pavilion at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene (CMC/DHK) held its 7th Annual Bald is Beautiful fundraiser on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015. This year over 80 participants raised funds, shaved their head or donated their locks.

To date close to $27,000 has been raised to directly benefit Kingsbury Pavilion's cancer patients through the Patient Relief and Cancer Care Funds at CMC/DHK. These funds help by easing the burden of basic living expenses that are often taken for granted such as gas to get to and from treatment, and the cost of prescriptions, heat, and groceries.

A special thank you to Mary Jane Doody of MJD & Co Hair Designs and her staff for donating their day to shave heads. Thank you to all our volunteers and the following organizations for their sponsorship: CVS/pharmacy, Deep Roots Massage, Savings Bank of Walpole, Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, Cheshire Village Pizza, Toadstool Bookshop, Mark Corliss Multi-Media Creations, Black Squirrel Studio, The Mountain, Monadnock Imaging, Monadnock Radio Group, Paul Mitchell of Northern New England, The Monadnock Shopper News and The Keene Sentinel. Additionally we are grateful to Gayla Tardie from Keene High School and the staff and students for kicking off the fundraising with their pre-event shaving on April 27th!

Donations can be made online at bald-is-beautiful.org through May 31st or mailed to Cheshire Health Foundation/BIB, 580 Court St, Keene, NH 03431.
