FOUR BUFFALO SABRES TO SHAVE THEIR HEADS FOR ROSWELL PARK’S BALD FOR BUCKS

BUFFALO, N.Y. (January 7, 2015) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced three current players and one alumnus will shave their heads on Feb. 14 as part of the Goin’ Bald for Bucks program, which raises money for Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI).

Mike Weber, Cody Hodgson, Chris Stewart and Martin Biron will be fundraising throughout the next month, and their efforts will culminate in a group shave at First Niagara Center. Cancer patients and Sabres fans will be in the audience to watch the event.

The Buffalo Sabres and their players are proud supporters of RPCI. The money raised by this event will accelerate the start of new promising research projects, and will also support programs that assist patients during their cancer journey.

“Many people in our community, many of our fans, have been touched by cancer,” Weber said. “It’s nearly impossible to find someone who hasn’t been impacted by it. The Goin’ Bald for Bucks program is a fun way for us to get involved and it serves as a visual reminder for people battling cancer that we are in their corner.”

Goin’ Bald for Bucks began in 2002 when Western New Yorker Cathleen George was being treated for cancer. Her brother, Tony, promised his sister that he would shave his head with her and remain bald until her hair grew back. Tony, a teacher at Lake Shore High School, brought this idea to his students and many offered to help. One student suggested they raise money and then do the shaving, and a fundraiser was born. In the years since the program was founded, thousands of participants across Western New York have joined forces to raise over $3.2 million to help find cures and save lives.
