Over $44k raised at annual St. John’s Community Shave
March 27, 2017 by admin
New and veteran Shavers took over Gap Court at the Avalon Mall on March 25, 2017 for a total of 97 freshly Shaved heads and over $44,000 raised in support of Young Adult Cancer Canada!
The original “Shave Lady,” Renee Bennett, came back as our MC — and ROCKED it!
Barb Stansbury (left) was first in line this year for her 11th Shave in ten years. Judy Williams (right) was behind her. They hadn’t met before, but shared this awesome moment together in the barbershop!
Snook has signed up to Shave later in May!
Evan Byrne Shaved for the fourth time — and smashed his goal of raising $400 to break a running fundraising total of $1,000!
On his online fundraising page, he said, “This will be my fourth shave. I did my first one when I was in Kindergarten. I didn’t know much about cancer, and I still don’t. What I do know is that it makes people sad. I hate cancer, but I love knowing that shaving my head can make a difference for people.”
Thank you to CIBC for their continued support!
April Watson kicked off her birthday celebrations by Shaving for the sixth time! She raised over $400, and will keep her head Shaved for four months for each hundred raised.
Christian Legge Shaved every year for nine years, but took 2016 off to grow his hair long enough to be donated. He was back on Saturday for his 10th Shave, and has a running fundraising total of over $74,000 over the last 11 years!
The St. John’s Community Shave for the Brave wouldn’t be possible without the help of many volunteers helping with registration, taking photos, shaving heads, and so much more! Huge thank you to Sharon Woodford and the volunteer hair stylists from Woodford Training Centre for keeping the barbershop running smoothly!
Huge thank yous to the Shavers, their donors and supporters, our sponsors and volunteers, and everyone who stopped by!
