Goodbye hair. They wished you farewell for a good cause.
Rí Rá Las Vegas, an Irish pub located inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, raised more than $27,000 Saturday at its first head-shaving fundraiser for St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which funds the research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
Starting at noon, several dancers from FANTASY at the Luxor kicked off the event as guest hairdressers and shaved the first heads. The haircuts continued throughout the day, as local hairdressers from Walk In Salon by Robert Cromeans and barbers from The Art of Shaving volunteered their time to shave heads.
Local food critic Al Mancini also took a turn as a guest barber by shaving some locks off a young volunteer. More than 40 heads were shaved on the day.
