Bald is beautiful, baby.
Just need to say that as some male and female Walnut Creek police department employees and city VIPS, as well as local volunteers, get ready to have a Delilah done on them later today. However, it's highly likely that this head shearing operation will leave these men, women, and children stronger--in body, mind, and soul--than that Biblical beefcake Samson. This is because these Walnut Creek locals will be losing their hair for a good cause: to raise money to help children suffering from cancer.
The Walnut Creek Police Department-sponsored fundraiser for the St. Baldrick's Foundation takes place this afternoon and evening at the Civic Park Community Center. St. Baldrick's is a nonprofit organization that hosts head-shaving parties to raise money and to show solidarity for kids diagnosed with cancer.
The most notable VIP to appear will be Brendan Miller. He is the Walnut Creek Intermediate student who has so far raised more than $1,000 to benefit this cause, and who has prepared for the event by dying his hair all sorts of brilliant colors. Here's what I wrote about Brendan last week.
If you still want to sign up to get your head shaved, or if you want to donate, or just get more information, visit the event website, or contact Sgt. Edwards with the Walnut Creek Police at (925) 256-3596.
