Balding for Dollars to take place

Whistler Friends to host fundraiser for cancer patients at BC Children's Hospital



Want to fight cancer? Go bald!

It will be as simple as that on March 26, when the Whistler Friends host the ninth annual Balding for Dollars event at the Garibaldi Lift Company.

The event is a province-wide fundraiser to support kids with cancer at BC Children's Hospital. Anyone willing to expose their scalps for a great cause and fundraise through collecting pledges is welcome to participate. Past participants have included men, women and children from Whistler and throughout the Corridor.

The Hairfarmers well be performing at the event, which is scheduled to see head shaving start at 3:30 p.m. Participants are asked to get there early because there will be a limited number of "barber stools" available.

The Whistler Friends aim to raise $12,500 in donations this year and grow total of funds from "balding" events in Whistler to $155,000.
