Join Team Will Power at St. Baldrick’s Day

For the second year, the Brave Will Foundation will be participating in St. Baldrick’s Day, an annual event held worldwide to support childhood cancer research. Last year, over $16 million was raised, as over 33,000 men, women, boys, and girls shaved their heads to raise money to support local efforts in the area of cancer treatment and research. Money raised from the event in Albany will help fund cancer research and support efforts at Albany Med.

This year, we are inviting you to become part of team Will Power at the event, which will be held on Sunday, March 21st at Savannah’s Dublin Underground on South Pearl Street in Albany. You can become a member of our team by visiting our team page.

Get a free “haircut”, show your support for the thousands of children fighting cancer this year and celebrate Will Power by becoming a member of our team!

An Evening of Will Power

The Brave Will Foundation is proud to announce its 1st annual Evening of Will Power, a gala to support the foundation. All proceeds from the gala will be used to support the goals of the foundation.

The event will be held from 7:00 pm to 12:00 at the historic Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga Springs, NY. The UPH is a non-for-profit organization working to restore a historic church in downtown Saratoga that can be used to support the arts and community events such as our gala. Please note: Due to renovations, the UPH is currently not handicap accessible.

The gala will feature live music from 2096 and The Lustre Kings. For your entertainment, casino games will be available courtesy of Total Events. Hors d’ouvres, a carving station, pasta station, and dessert station will be provided by Classé Catering, as well as cocktails.

Raffles and silent auction items, as well as prizes for “high rollers”, will be up for grabs throughout the night.

Reservations for the event are $100 per ticket or $500 for six tickets. Reservations can be made online on our Gala 2010 page or you can print a reservation form from that page and mail it in with a check. All reservations must be made by Friday, April 2nd. Space at the event is limited so get your tickets early!

The foundation is so excited to be hosting this event in memory of our little angel Will. We know the generosity of all those supporting our cause will undoubtedly allow the spirit of Brave Will to continue to shine through the work of those involved in the foundation.

We look forward to seeing you all on April 24th!!!
