Hair-razing fundraiser in Prospect Heights
Prospect Heights Elementary District 23 held a hair-razing fundraiser Friday at MacArthur Middle School for the St. Baldrick's Foundation fighting pediatric cancer. Male and female students, teachers and administrators from throughout the district participated.
Guys had their heads shaved while the ladies had a choice between shaving their heads or having green extensions braided into their hair.
The staff members of Lady Jane's Haircuts for Men in Palatine donated their time to shave and braid the extensions.
The fundraiser is an especially poignant one for District 23, which has lost students to cancer.
