Members of the Lake Oswego Fire Department and the Lake Oswego Police department are teaming up to shave their heads to raise money for St. Baldrick's Foundation for childhood cancer research.

On Monday, April 14, from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Vital Barbershop in Bridgeport Village, policemen and firefighters will line up, along with players from the Trailblazers and the LumberJax, to shave off their tresses and donate their pledged funds to St. Baldrick's.

The public is also invited to shave their heads for a suggested donation of $25 to $30.

The St. Baldrick's Foundation has been coordinating head-shaving events since 2000. St. Baldrick's head-shavings have been held internationally and have included such celebrity shavees as Michael Douglas and Jay Leno.
