Ravenswood Tech Company Goes Bald to Support Childhood Cancer Research
March 15, 2017 – Chicago, IL – The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-powered organization dedicated to raising money for children’s cancer research, will host one of its signature head-shaving events at The SMB Help Desk, LLC located at 4147 N. Ravenswood Avenue, Chicago, IL on March 26, 2017, where more than 20 will shave their heads to raise money for lifesaving research.
Every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer; one in five won’t survive, and those who do often suffer long-term effects from treatments too harsh for their developing bodies. Kids are special, and at St. Baldrick’s we treat them that way. From its beginnings, St. Baldrick’s has believed that kids deserve the chance to be kids – fun-loving, carefree, refreshingly honest, and always a little goofy – and deserve the chance at a future. That’s why donations raised at events like this have made it possible for St. Baldrick’s to fund more than $200 million to support the development of childhood cancer treatments that are as unique as every kid.
The Small Business for St. Baldrick’s event will include free food and drinks for those who donate or raise money, Foosball, bags tournament, a 50/50 raffle, and an all around celebration of those who give up their hair as a show of support to those children who lose their hair as they fight the biggest battle of their lives.
“This is an annual event for The SMB Help Desk and St. Baldrick’s since 2014. The whole company gets involved in one way or another. Over the last 2 years we have raised over $21,000,” says Marvin Korves, President of The SMB Help Desk, LLC. “We hope to raise $15,000 this year.”
