Are you ready to make a difference in a child’s life?

Now’s your chance.

Matt Denny’s Ale House is holding their 13th annual St. Baldrick’s Day Fundraiser on March 19, Thursday, 6:30 p.m. to benefit children’s cancer research.

For the past 12 years, Matt Denny’s Ale House Restaurant has been holding this fundraiser, gathering people to shave their heads to show solidarity for children who have been going bald from their radiation treatments and raising as much as $450,000.

On March 19, watch over 150 men, women, and even children shave their heads at the restaurant. Most of them are members of the Arcadia Fire and Police Departments and local schools.

To contribute to this noble cause, you can sponsor a shavee during the event.

“This has been a great way to show support for the kids, and raise much needed funds for cancer research,” says Matt McSweeny, owner of Matt Denny’s.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-driven charity that aims to fund research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives, has been asking men and women to “brave the shave” and help them raise funds. Since its inception, a lot of heads have been shaved, and over $200 million in donations have been received.

Since 2002, Matt Dennys has raised $657,121.  The goal for 2014 was $50,000 and they raised $85,507. This year’s goal is $60,000 and as of this writing, they have reached 61k.

Matt Denny’s is located at 145 E. Huntington Drive, Arcadia. For more information, call (626) 462-0250 or visit mattdennys.com.
