Hudson’s Shave to Save promises a day of fun for a good cause

Hudson residents are banding together to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

It was a friend’s cancer diagnosis that prompted Andrew Dumas, a volunteer firefighter in Hudson, to do something to help eliminate the disease once and for all.

He started a Shave to Save campaign in his hometown and last year, they raised more than $10,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

They’re at it again this year, and for the third edition, 20 males will shave their heads, seven women and a few girls will donate their hair and four will shave their heads. Their goal is to raise $8,000.

The main event will take place at 1 p.m. April 30 at the Hudson fire station, where there will be live music, face painting, a raffle, and food.

Then later that evening, there will be a spaghetti dinner at the Hudson community centre where the music will continue accompanied by dancing and drinks.

The dinner starts at 7 p.m. To donate or join the team and raise money, visit convio.cancer.ca/goto/HFD2016.
