    The final appeal…

    I promise this will be the last time I ask you – at least this year, anyway – but there is less than a month to go before I “brave the shave” to raise money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for children’s cancer research and I’m still just a little short of my $5,000 fundraising goal.

    I hope you will join with dozens of other fraternal colleagues – and a smattering of my family members – and help me reach the $5,000 threshold by making a personal or corporate contribution to this year’s campaign.

    My sister sent me a check with a note last week accusing me of doing this “because you get a free haircut that lasts a long time!”  And while my sister knows that I can make a dollar go a very long way, the real reason I’m shaving my head for the third consecutive year is because I believe deeply in the work of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and because Alliance members inspire me to give back. My schedule sometimes precludes me from participating in community service activities, but this is one way that I can fulfill the fraternal mission without simply writing a check.

    Joe’s inaugural shave – 2015

    So, I’m asking you one last time for your generous support of my soon-to-be-bald head. You can give directly HERE or by phone at 888-899-BALD. Credit cards are the easiest way to give, or you can send a check payable to “St. Baldrick’s Foundation” to me at the Alliance home office. This year I’ll be shaving it all off at the American Fraternal Alliance’s Executive Summit at the W Hotel in downtown Chicago. If you are feeling REALLY generous, you can join me and “brave the shave” yourself. I guarantee that it will be one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do.

    Please help give other families’ stories a happy ending. Whether you are a first-time contributor or one who has been with us in supporting this cause for years, I truly appreciate your support. Thank you!
