The third annual St. Baldrick's head-shaving fundraiser for pediatric cancer research will be from 2 to 4 p.m. March 15 at Mellow Mushroom of Hilton Head Island.

Sam and Jack Borisuk, Ethan Hussong, Colton Kent, John Richardson, Luke Sodemann, Dillon Watkins and team captain Jack McGoldrick have reunited their team "the Hilton Head Little Baldies." Joe DiNovo of Joe's Barbershop will lead the team of barbers shaving the heads of the Hilton Head area elementary- and middle-school students. Community members can support their action by making donations to their team.

The event will also feature a silent auction, pizza-eating contest, a proclamation from Mayor Drew Laughlin and live music. Miss Hilton Head Island and "X Factor" contestant Rachel Tripp will perform.

The fundraiser is organized by Terry and Cynthia Cermak, who started the event in honor of their son Henry. Last year, St. Baldrick's created a Hero Fund in his name: the Henry Cermak Fund for Pediatric Cancer Research.

Volunteers can join a team or start their own team at Merchants who wish to help sponsor the event can call 843-476-4768 or email
