More

 

Students from Tulane University School of Medicine set a goal to raise more than $40,000 to support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. So far, the group has surpassed $32,000. For more information or to donate, please visit: http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/eventid/718/eventyear/2010

In the past two years, Tulane students have raised more than $120,000 for the organization through head-shaving events.

The head-shaving festivities will also feature a silent auction, bake sale and event shirt sales to raise money to build a “Boundless Playground” within Tulane Medical Center so that all children seeking treatment at the hospital, including those with disabilities, will have a safe and fun place to play.
