Rockholm Shaves His Head for Children's Cancer Charity
Placer County District 1 Supervisor Rocky Rockholm will have his head shaved this Saturday to help raise funds to combat childhood cancer and help its patients and survivors.
Rockholm is part of the Westfield Pot O’ Chrome team that thus far has raised more than $9,500 in team funds and $7,000 in sponsorships for the event, which features daytime public shavings of local supporters of the cause followed by a ‘Baldy Bash’ party and benefit concert in the evening.
The annual event benefits the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which spends more money than any other private organization in the nation on finding cures and improving the quality of life for childhood cancer patients and survivors.
Who: Placer County Supervisor Rocky Rockholm
What: Has his head shaved for charity
Where: Westfield Galleria Outdoor Promenade
When: Noon, March 13, 2010
“This is a wonderful organization with a blessed cause of helping local cancer patients and their families through very trying times,” said Rockholm, who wears a yellow ‘Live Strong’ wristband and has a granddaughter who survived cancer. “I’m delighted to be able to help.”
This year’s Baldy Bash is sponsored by Westfield Galleria and features food by Il Fornaio, Cheesecake Factory, and Ruth’s Chris Steak House with music by The Fenians, an electrifying Irish musical quintet performing Celtic music complemented by influences of Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz and World Music. The Baldy Bash is from 5 – 9 p.m. at the Westfield Galleria at Roseville’s outdoor promenade. Tickets available at the door for $25.
