In solidarity with each other and those suffering from childhood cancers, more than 150 fraternity men shaved their heads at Rira Irish Pub in midtown on Thursday, March 10. The men collectively raised more than $55,000 for St. Baldrick's Foundation and childhood cancer research, more than half the $107,043 total raised from their efforts and those of other local businesses.

The Tech baseball team is also advocating this effort, and has committed to one player shaving his head for every $200 donated between now and March 20. The baseball team will have its players' heads shaved following their game versus N.C. State that Sunday, and hopes to raise at least $1,500 in its fundraising campaign.

Donations may still be made to IFC or the baseball team.
