Western Middle School Fundraiser- open to ALL schools:

On March 5 at 6:00 pm, Western will host its fourth annual St. Baldrick's event in the gymnasium. This year's event is titled "Western's Mane Event!" The primary goal of St. Baldrick's foundation is to raise money through donations tied to shaving one's head. (We've included the option of or donating a ponytail of 8 inches or longer, in lieu of a complete head shave). Over the past two events, the Western community (with help from the greater Greenwich community) has raised over $37,000 for this worthy cause. From food donations from local eateries to the music of a local cover band made of some Western parents to volunteer event organizers and the shavees themselves, St. Baldrick's allows us to share the best versions of ourselves with the community.

You can help by donating to the cause at this link, signing up to be a "shavee" or hair donor at our event or recruiting family or friends to do either of the above using this link. Should you decide to participate, a signed participant agreement needs to be turned in on the night of the event.

Feel free to direct questions to Kerry Gavin (kerry_gavin@greenwich.k12.ct.us)
