‘Cut for a Cure’ at Dave’s Barber Shop Aug. 16

ELBURN—The community will have an opportunity to donate to the Cancer Research Centers of America during the Saturday of Elburn Days, Aug. 16, at Dave’s Barber Shop, 132 N. Main St., from noon to 4 p.m.

Nolan Allen was inspired by his cousin making the choice to shave his head in a “Saint Baldricks” event to support cancer research. After hearing about the fundraiser, he wanted to create a local event in Elburn. Fueled by another family connection, with his uncle Craig succumbing to stage four lung cancer earlier this year, Nolan doesn’t want to wait any longer to make a difference.

Understanding that most people are not willing to shave their heads bald, this event will host a great chance for people to receive a back-to-school haircut or make the “Saint Baldricks” commitment, with all proceeds being donated to cancer research.
