Our very own Derrick Colyer volunteered to be a shavee for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Rock the Bald fundraising events have taken place at the Leeds Barbershop throughout the month of March, with more than $40,000 raised so far. Participants volunteered to have their heads shaved, with pledged donations from family, friends, and local businesses.
“I set a goal for $500.00 (being my first year participating) and thanks to several donors and very generous donation by Suter I was able to meet my goal!! It was a great experience and I plan to do it again next year!”Derrick Colyer
On March 15th, Derrick hit the barber chair, pledges in hand. With his participation in Rock the Bald, Derrick raised much-needed funds and awareness of children’s cancer. The funds raised are distributed to nearby hospitals such as Sanford Center (Sioux Falls, SD), University of Iowa (Iowa City, IA), and University of Nebraska Children’s Hospital (Omaha, NE).
We’re proud to have you on our team, Derrick!
