and Joey's Excellent Shaving Adventure - The Next Decade” is back April
23rd, 2018 at Connolly's on West 45th in NYC, 4:00-8:00PM. St. Baldrick’s is
the world’s largest private fundraising organization raising monies and
awareness for pediatric cancer research. Over the past 11 years thousands of
friends, family and colleagues throughout the world have helped raise millions
to help find a cure and we will be shedding our locks again on April 23rd to do
our part. Joey and I have been bestowed the honor of Knight Commander of St.
Baldrick’s for our 10 years+ of volunteerism. 11 years ago, our efforts started
with a few individuals then working for NetApp, my 9 year old son and a few of
his St Agnes teammates who inspired many from there and what a journey it's
been. Close to $7,000,000 raised directly in our campaign and we have helped
St. Baldrick’s go from 17MILL at the time to over $250,000,000 raised since.
Our next decade continues again with individuals and leaders throughout the
tech industry stepping up and inspiring their colleagues, friends and family by
shedding their locks to again raise money and awareness. Leaders from Security
Scorecard, Fortinet, UiPath, NetApp, Looking Glass, Varonis, BMC, RTP,
Viewpoint, ServiceNow,the NYFD and another group of St Agnes CYO kids and
more are playing their part and we are asking you to do yours. We have
helped launch #TechTacklesCancer campaign — a global initiative that
unites tech companies worldwide to raise funds for childhood cancer research.

campaign, make a donation, take a sponsorship and/or join us on April 23rd.
