Hauppauge Cosmetology Students Raise More Than $3,000 to Help The Fight Against Children's Cancer
MORE THAN $3,000 FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST CHILDREN’S CANCER
The Cosmetology Program of Eastern Suffolk BOCES, housed at Hauppauge High
School, has raised $3,000 (and counting) for St. Baldrick's Foundation to fight
childhood cancer. “Shaving the Way to Conquer Kids' Cancer” was a huge success
as teachers and their families, administrators and community members joined
together to raise funds; sell tee-shirts, hats, bracelets and pins; and/or to
shave their hair for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
sophomore Keerthi Banothu even celebrated her 16th birthday by
shaving her hair at the school event. At 30 inches long, Banothu’s hair was
donated to another charity, Locks of Love, where it will be used to make at
least two full wigs for patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
