BALD IS BEAUTIFUL

Following this afternoon’s game against the Indians, Reds pitcher Bill Bray had his head shaved in an effort to raise money to benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a charity committed to funding the research and finding cures for childhood cancers. 

 The foundation, which derived its name from a combination of the words “bald” and “St. Patrick’s Day”, holds many of its events during the month of March.  Bray is supporting his 10-year-old cousin, Trevor, who is battling neuroblastoma cancer and on his own organizes several fundraising events each year.  Since 200, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation has attracted 189,660 volunteers while raising more than $117 million. 

Donors who pledge at least $25 will receive an autographed photo of Bray, with each of the 5 top donors receiving an autographed jersey.  To pledge or find more information, visit www.facebook.com/BillBray45.

The young lady who shaved Bray’s head today is 10-year-old Erin Bailey, a Scottsdale Prep student who is now 2 years post-chemo after battling Stage 4 Acute Lymphoma.
