Totally Baldacious event to support child with cancer

FarmHouse will be hosting their second annual Totally Baldacious event Thursday at 7 p.m in the Market Stage of The Union.

Totally Baldacious is an event where the audience watches 20 members of FarmHouse shave their heads. Members of the community and others from campus will also be auctioned off to have their heads shaved.

Though the event’s name is light-hearted, it is a charity for a really good cause, according to Paul Sitter, FarmHouse philanthropy chair.

This year, proceeds will go to 10-year-old Ben Sahr from Volga, South Dakota who was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer.

Sitter said FarmHouse first got the idea to have the Totally Baldacious event from other FarmHouse chapters around the nation. This allowed them to work more closely with individual families instead of going solely through the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

FarmHouse will be accepting donations before and during the event. Sitter said he hopes that the auction is a small part of the proceeds and that they will be able to raise even more money through donations.

Sitter said they hope to continue this as an annual event and continue contributing to the community.
