Register now for “Shave for the Brave” at Manteno Sportsman’s Club

As the Irish eyes are turning towards March and St. Patrick’s Day, the Manteno St. Baldrick’s event is preparing for its 9th annual head shaving event. The Manteno event is the area’s largest pediatric cancer research fundraiser.

The annual Manteno St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 1 P.M at the Manteno Sportsmen’s Club.  All proceeds from this event benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Pediatric Cancer Research. 

Locally, the Manteno St. Baldrick’s event has raised over $630,000 and shaved over 850 heads in its 8 years, all in the name of curing pediatric cancer.  Paul Mitchell the school Bradley will be on hand to take care of all of the head shaving duties.  The local school provides all of the equipment and brings their community outreach team of students to help the event run smoothly.

The day will be filled with the air of a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.  There will be music provided by Chicago based DJ Danny “The Core-Bot” Corbett.  Master of Ceremonies, James Field will be on hand again this year to steer fur flying ship.  There will be raffles, a cash bar, and Mia Bella’s Pizza truck will be on-site.  The day truly is a St. Patrick’s Day Fest fueled with goodwill and cheer for a great cause.

If you are interested in joining us by shaving your head, donating, or providing sponsorship for the event, you may register here or you may contact Tony Worsham at (815) 954-7326 for more information.  Remember, you don’t have to go bald to help make a difference.  Come join the fun and help #Dfychildhoodcancer!
