Bald is Beautiful


Bald is Beautiful 2020 Raised $21,158!


We are truly grateful to everyone who participated in Bald is Beautiful this year. Although the circumstances were challenging due to the coronavirus – our live Shave Day event had to be cancelled – you persevered and ultimately helped us raise a significant amount of money to support local cancer patients in treatment at Cheshire’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center – Kingsbury Pavilion.

All of the funds raised in 2020 will benefit the Patient Relief and Cancer Care Funds. Patients in need will receive assistance with things like daily living expenses or medication co-pays. The Cancer Center will be able to purchase equipment and other items to help make treatment more comfortable.

This is all possible thanks to you! We hope to get back on track next year and see many of you in person for Bald is Beautiful 2021!

We participate in Bald is Beautiful because raising money to help those with cancer is important to us. Having known so many people who have had cancer, we wanted to support The Kingsbury Pavilion/Norris Cotton Cancer Center. We love the fact all the money raised goes toward helping local patients with expenses for travel, medication, etc. This event also gives us an opportunity to honor all of the people we, our friends, and our family members have known who have had struggled against cancer.   – The Riggios
