Cops for Cancer Fund Razor 2009

Yes, it is that time again. It?s been two years since our last event and its time to shave again. This year?s event will be held on Saturday June 6th 2009 at Dewe?s Independent Grocer, 420 Dundas St E Belleville.

We have a special guest that will be providing the entertainment during the event and that is Shauna Irene. Shauna Irene is an up and coming singer song writer from the Quinte area and soon to be a common house hold name in the music industry.

This year we have something for everyone. We will be shaving heads as we normally do but this year we have added a few more other fund raising events. Taking into account that a lot of our Officers keep their hair close to the wood we are now going to take pledges on waxing a body part. If you are a walking, talking ?Chia Pet? and you know who you are then this is a great opportunity to raise a few dollars. I?ve been told it doesn?t hurt a bit, honestly. We haven?t forgot about the ladies, we will have a few people there who will be putting a pink high light in your hair for $25.00 with $10.00 going to the fund raiser.

Here is a brief history of our Service?s involvement in the fund raiser. We started back in 1995 and have been doing the event every second year. To date the members of our Service have raised close to $30,000.00 for cancer research, not too bad at all. It is great fun for you and your families but we do have to remember why we are doing this. There isn?t one person who can say that cancer hasn?t affected them. Each and every one of us has been touched by cancer either as a survivor, diagnosed and going through treatment or knowing someone who battled this disease.

Remember it all grows back eventually
