Going Bald for a Cause

Going Bald for a Cause

With the help and support of the surrounding community, the National Junior Honor Society at James Wilson Young Middle School in the Bayport-Blue Point School District collected recently $8,667 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, an organization set on finding cures for childhood cancer.

Contributing to this year’s successful event were the 65 individuals who volunteered to shave their locks, and the countless others who selflessly gave to the cause both at the event and through the NJHS’s online donation drive. 

As this year’s drive had a personal connection for the school – it was held to honor seventh-grader Casey McLehose and sixth-grader Marco Daidone – the NJHS was able to surpass their initial goal as well as last year’s donation of $6,980.

The school extends special thanks to the event’s two barbers, Lynne and Arlene from La Rage Hair Salon in Bayport.
