This will go down as the most successful St. Baldrick’s fundraising events in South Huntington. They will be counting the donations weeks after the barber shears rested. Whitman’s St. Baldrick’s co-coordinators Mr. Jaime Rogers and Ralph Miranda are please to report that the tally is well over $40,000 for this year.

As part of the annual event held at Walt Whitman High School, South Huntington’s Maplewood Intermediate School pooled their resources and made a big showing. For seven years, students and teachers have answered the call to raise money and help fight childhood cancer. Team Maplewood would like to dedicate their efforts this year to their colleague and friend, Steve Schmidt, his daughter Maggie, and the rest of the Schmidt family.

Thank you to Mr. Metzak at Silas Wood for coordinating their St. Baldrick's team, Silas Saviors.  Together the students and staff raised over $9,000 for St. Baldrick’s.  Great Job team Silas! 

Congratulations to the South Huntington Community for making this the most successful St. Baldrick’s events ever.  Stay tuned for updates as the tally continues and we honor all who participated.
