Over the last 5 years, the events in Innsbrook, coordinated by local volunteer Kevin Smith, have raised over $180,000 for childhood cancer research. The family-friendly, and free, festival plans to have live music, vendors, food trucks, Irish dancing, a petting zoo, and so much more entertainment.
At the heart of the event is St. Baldrick‘s signature head-shaving event. Volunteers of all ages and both sexes sign up to shave their heads in solidarity with children who typically lose their hair during cancer treatment.
The volunteers help by (1) raising money for childhood cancer research and (2) by showing kids its okay to be bald.
