We hope you received our message yesterday about our weather-related venue change for tonight's live portion of our event. That email is copied below, but we also wanted to share with you more information about our COVID procedures, since this is partially a live event. Please take a moment to read this... our event is not just about the health of kids with cancer, but it's about your health, too! For safety and legal reasons, we must ask participants to follow COVID protocols.
Masks: Per St. Baldrick's policy, all participants will be required to wear masks, even during the shave. Don't worry, our barber is an expert at mask handling during a haircut! We hope to have a socially distanced area where you may remove your mask briefly for a before & after photo.
Distancing: Please follow CDC guidelines for social distancing and keep six feet away from those who don't reside in your household.
Guests: Please try to keep guests to a minimum. We suggest live streaming your shave so people who cannot attend can watch the fun.
Sanitization: Hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the venue. Our barber will also be following strict guidelines for sanitizing each piece of equipment between shaves and a new, unused cape will be used for each shavee.
Food and Drink: Our event will be held outdoors on the patio of a restaurant venue, so please consume food and drink inside the restaurant space away from the shaving area.
Photography: Please make sure photos are taken in a manner that makes it obvious we are following social distancing guidelines, which we know everyone will be doing!
We also encourage people to participate virtually or get shaved tomorrow at American Haircuts by appointment (details below).
Since our event will be on a covered outside patio, the weather is expected to be around 60 degrees tonight, so please dress for the occasion!
HERE IS MORE INFORMATION COVERED IN YESTERDAY'S EMAIL, UPDATED WITH NEW INFORMATION:
HERE ARE THE DETAILS ON THE THREE WAYS YOU CAN GET SHAVED
1) ON THE PATIO AT ROCKY MOUNTAIN PIZZA - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17 (5PM - 8PM)
We'll be doing shaves live and socially distanced outside on the Patio at Rocky Mountain Pizza at 1005 Hemphill Avenue (corner of Hemphill and 10th Street). There is parking at the event.
2) AT AMERICAN HAIRCUTS - THURSDAY, MARCH 18 (12PM - 7PM)
For those who feel more comfortable getting shaved in the barbershop, we'll be doing shaves by appointment (to allow for proper distancing and sanitization between shaves) at American Haircuts at Ansley II (1579 Monroe Drive, near the corner of Piedmont at Monroe). There is parking at the Ansley II shopping center and ample parking across the street at Ansley Mall.
To book a St. Baldrick's shave at American Haircuts, visit the following link:
Once there, choose "St. Baldrick's Headshave" as the service, click the St. Baldrick's Headshave Barber, and choose your time on Thursday, March 18th. All shaves will be done by David Alexander, our long-time barber, and organizer.
3) VIRTUAL AT HOME
If you would prefer, you can also have a friend or family member shave your head at home and post your before and after photos to your St. Baldrick's page or on social media.
Because of the logistics involved, we won't be hosting a group live shave, but we encourage you to go live on social media so friends and family can see the action! Pick any time of your choosing and let everyone know to tune in!
Our event will be completely cashless this year, so encourage people to donate using gobald.org (which will take them directly to our event page on the St. Baldrick's website). From there, they can select your profile and donate directly to you!
As we write this, we've almost reached our $50,000 goal!! I'm confident we can exceed that this year!
St. Baldrick’s Honored Kids
Kids with cancer are our reason for it all. They’re the inspiration behind our event and the reason we’re helping fund childhood cancer research. We believe all kids should be able to grow up and turn their dreams into realities. Join our event or make a donation, and click the photos below to read their incredible stories.
