    Shave It Off to Cure Childhood Cancer

    The Collingswood Firefighters for a Kid’s Cure isn’t your average charity event.

    They’re not just raising money, but will be shaving their way to curing childhood cancer on Sunday.

    The event kicks off at noon at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom off of White Horse Pike in Collingswood, N.J. and goes until 5 p.m.

    A $10 donation for ages 10 and up is required. Once you get in the door there will be plenty of food, prizes and music from Irish band The Broken Shillelaghs for all to enjoy.

    If you’re bold enough to shave your own head to raise support and awareness for the cause then make sure you are there by 3 p.m. to register.

    “The St. Baldrick’s Cup” award will wrap up the event and go to the team who donated the most money.

    The foundation has already raised nearly 60 percent of their $100,000 goal with “Team Declan” leading the donations.
