What is it?
Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, Ryan Malone, Victor Hedman, Teddy Purcell and Nate Thompson will all shave their heads to raise money for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and the Vincent Lecavalier Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at All Children’s Hospital.
So the players each have until Friday May 6th to meet their fundraising goal*. But the actual head-shaving will take place on April 7th at 5:30pm at the Pepin Hospitality Center. I'm not sure why this runs past the actual event or if that is just a typo....but it's for a good cause, so I'll make allowances on their news release not making much sense.
To donate, go to the www.fastercure.org or www.pcfcutforacure.org. DO IT
*No idea if they have to meet their fundraising goal in order to shave their heads, but I assume they will do it no matter what
