What is

Bald for Bucks?

Bald for Bucks started with a promise between a brother and sister. That one small act of love and compassion has grown into a head-shaving fundraising program that spans generations throughout our Western New York community.

We all know someone whose life has been affected by cancer. Show the ones you love that you are with them by going Bald for Bucks. There are several ways to participate. Choose the best one for you!
