On Sunday, May 19, Swinerton OCLA joined forces to fight childhood cancer in partnership with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. To show their solidarity with children battling all forms of cancer, 15 people donned their superhero capes and had their heads shaved. Over $33,000 was raised for this incredible charity—including $10,000 from a subcontractor alone!
The event took place at O’Malley’s Irish Pub in Seal Beach. The “shavees” were joined by over 50 Swinerton volunteers, friends, and family members to root them on and give them thanks. A big shout out to the barbers from RCee’s Barbershop for donating their time to help the cause. The event was a huge success not just in terms of money, but in uniting as one and showing how dedicated Swinerton is to those in need.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is the top private funder of childhood cancer research grants in the U.S. and around the world. Each year, thousands of volunteers worldwide organize fundraisers to raise money to support life-saving childhood cancer research. St. Baldrick’s events are the largest volunteer-powered fundraising opportunity benefiting pediatric cancer research.
