The new trend for 2010….bald is in! The perfect head shaving or hair cutting opportunity is available this Saturday, March 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Town Square Las Vegas - Klip It For Kidz.
Klip It For Kidz is sponsored by Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN) and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (METRO). Its purpose is to raise money for the support of programs at the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF). Money raised at the event will help children and families in Southern Nevada who are affected by cancer or other life threatening illnesses.
There will be live entertainment, appearances by Las Vegas celebrities, demonstrations by Metro's K-9 unit, food and fun for the entire family.
How do I participate?
- Download a pledge form at www.nvccf.org or on Facebook (search for Klip It For Kidz) and collect pledges from family, friends, and co-workers now through March 13th.
- Bring your pledges and your full head of hair to the southwest parking lot of Town Square Las Vegas (near Rave Motion Pictures).
- Turn over your pledges and step up to the barber chair to shave off your winter hair (or donate 10 inches or more to Locks of Love.)
Must I cut my hair?
People can band together as teams to get pledges in honor of their company, family, school or organization. Individuals can set their own fund raising goals and simply come to enjoy the event - all while keeping their hair intact. Event sponsorships are also available.
How does the fundraiser work?
Money raised will directly support more than 25 programs offered by NCCF. The foundation works side by side with the medical community to provide social, emotional, educational, financial and psychological support services and programs to families of all children diagnosed with a life threatening or critical illness (such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, hemophilia, renal disorders and other immunologic diseases).
Assistance is provided by supplying a child's required medication, providing transportation for doctor appointments, providing food and clothes to struggling families, offering free psychological counseling to those without insurance, and providing the opportunity for children to continue their education while they battle disease.
