The 2013 Pepperell St. Baldrick's event was a big success.

Forty-one people were shaved.

On behalf of St. Baldricks and our family, we would like to thank the Pepperell Free Press for promoting our event. The shaving was done by Joe Lisio and Kyle Belair from Patriot Barber of Pepperell and Mark Laviolette.

Thank you to Dunkin Donuts, Donelan's, C & S Pizza and Chef on Wheels for their food and refreshment donations; Simards Laundromat for their donation of balloons.

Some of the raffle prizes were donated by local businesses including The Bronze Bell, Lorden Hardware, Pepperell Family Pharmacy, Pet-icure, Dolce Wood Fired Pizza, Hannaford of Townsend, Bailey's Bar and Grille and Gibbet Hill Grille.

So far we have raised approximately $16,914 , with donations still coming in. It is not too late to donate. People can still donate on the website stbaldricks.org or by calling 888-899-BALD.

Thank you to all who participated, donated and attended. Hopefully, some day there will be no need for us to have these events.
