A total of 40 people volunteered to have their heads shaved recently at Senica's Oak Ridge in La SAlle, raising almost $8,000 for St. Baldrick’s Foundation to direct toward childhood cancer research.
 
The Carus Purple Power team from Carus Chemical raised the most money during Sunday’s event. Seven Utica firefighters and emergency medical technicians were willing to go bald, and a half dozen firefighters or family members from Peru were willing to be “shavees.”

Utica fire chief Ben Brown said one little girl, age 8, from the Marseilles area, had 16 inches of hair cut off to donate to Locks of Love to make into wigs, and then had her head shaved for St. Baldrick’s.
