St. Baldrick's Day 2016

On Tuesday, March 1st, Molloy College held its annual St. Baldrick's day event to raise awareness for childhood cancer. Boys came to shave their heads, and girls cut off a minimum of 8 inches of hair to help support the cause. All of the hair collected goes to Pantene in California where they create wigs for individuals affected with Childhood Cancer. 

Elizabeth Meittinis, the Community Service Coordinator for Molloy Student Government found this year's turnout to be "amazing." Over $3,000 was raised online, and as Elizabeth states, "that's without any of the fundraising money that we have done on campus. With that, I'm sure we're going to exceed our goal of $5,000." A tremendous turnout led to a wonderfully successful day for raising awareness, and the Molloy Community supported the St. Baldrick's Foundation with an outstanding showing.
