The Strip’s Celebrated St. Baldrick’s Event Welcomes Las Vegas Community, Local Celebrities to Raise Funds for Childhood Cancer Research Efforts
Make a bold move in the fight against childhood cancer and go bald with New York-New York Hotel & Casino during its 13th annual St. Baldrick’s Day head-shaving event Saturday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
For more than a decade, New York-New York has rallied the local community raising millions of dollars for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Guests of all ages are invited to enjoy a fun-filled day on the hotel’s iconic Brooklyn Bridge with live music, celebrity guest head-shavers and more, as participants shed their locks to support St. Baldrick’s. The event is free and open to the public.
“With childhood cancer impacting a child every two minutes, we are incredibly proud to support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and participants. We encourage everyone to join us in what will be a memorable day, most importantly raising funds for lifesaving children’s cancer research,” said Mike Neubecker, President & COO of New York-New York & MGM Grand. “Our team takes great pride in supporting the Las Vegas community and we encourage all to stop by to participate and enjoy the festivities.”
Participants interested in shaving their heads for the cause can register online here or on-site the day of the event. Group registration is also available for teams and organizations.
Throughout the day, friends, family and spectators can enjoy entertainment on the Brooklyn Bridge and commemorate the day with photos with the city’s most celebrated names in sports and entertainment who will be lending a hand as celebrity head shavers and emcees.
