DARE to go bald for a good cause and raise money for the World’s Greatest Shave.

The Leukaemia Foundation is holding its annual World’s Greatest Shave for brave people to step up to the plate and shave, colour or wax their hair for sponsorship or donations.

The money raised from the event will go to the care of patients and their families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.

Michelle Stroud is organising the World’s Greatest Shave for Emerald on Friday, March 18, at the Emerald Town Hall.

There is plenty planned for the night, which starts from 7.30pm, including entertainment, stalls and of course watching people shave or colour their hair.

The Emerald State High School band and Marist jazz band will be playing a set to entertain the crowds and will get into proceedings with the shaving of heads, Michelle said.

“We have two shaving their heads and would like to get more,” she said. “If people join as part of our team, they can do their own fundraising and then we provide the event.

“We have four hairdressers lined up and have got heaps of hairspray for those who want to colour their hair.

“We have stalls including Avon, Bright Bugs, Tupperware, Learning Ladder and Mary Kat cosmetics and quite a few more.

“It’s very festive, we have entertainment on the main stage and will have a bar and sausage sizzle. It will be a good family night so come and raise money for a worthwhile cause.

“We are looking for more people who are willing to lose it.”

See Michelle at the Emerald Library for information.
