Several local kids shaved their heads at Harbour House Pub in Decatur, Ga. this weekend.

Their efforts helped raise $30,000 for research to help find cures for childhood cancer. The event, held March 15, was a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Students from Decatur’s 4/5 Academy grew their hair long just so they could get it all shaved off during the fundraiser. The head-shaving is intended to show solidarity with cancer patients.

Kupe Kupersmith said the fundraiser Saturday was a huge success.

“People were having a great time during the event and opened their wallets,” he said. “We had six people sign up at the event. And money is still coming in.”

Last year, Kupersmith helped raise nearly $23,000 for St. Baldrick’s. The nonprofit gives that money over to organizations like St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
