Mepham High School will host the annual St. Baldrick’s Chop Your Lock's for Charity event for the entire district on Wednesday, March 18, at 6 p.m., at 2401 Camp Ave. in Bellmore.
Students have so far raised more than $6,200 toward this year’s event. Last year they garnered more than $50,000 in donations to benefit the St. Baldrick's Foundation, the nonprofit organization supports childhood cancer research. They anticipate having more than 100 shavees and more than 50 hair donors to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program.
Attendees will be entertained by the Amityville Highland Pipes and Drum Band, who plan to perform during the event, and there will be a special sneak peek at the Mepham Skull and Bones spring musical, “Footloose,” as well as raffles, food and music.
Seniors in Participation in Government are coordinating the entire event, which will once again honor local pediatric cancer survivors, Giuliana Geller of Massapequa Park, Gabrielle Brancaccio of Rockville Centre, Robert LaSpina of Bellmore and Kristen O'Halloran of Bellmore.
