Even more Town Talk for March 9

Vail, CO, Colorado
Who is Francis Patrick Gilhooley and why should you care? Francis Patrick Gilhooley is that thing that has been growing on Eagle Fire Chief Jon Asper’s head for way too long now. A remnant of the 2011 St. Baldrick’s Foundation head-shaving event, it’s time for that shock of hair to go. Or maybe it will stay? You’ll get to decide! Come to the Eagle Fire Station on March 17, from 1 to 5 p.m., where men, women and children from all over the valley will join the Eagle firefighters and their chief as they shave their heads to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. Come and vote with your money — should Chief Asper shave off that lock of hair or not? Also come for the silent auction (including a buffalo shoulder mount, vet services, spa services, medical services and much more), food, barbers’ rodeo, a kids’ activity table by Dewey Dabbles pottery, and a Knights of the Bald Table celebration honoring those who have shaved their heads for the past seven years. Can't make it in person? Donate online at www.stbaldricks.org and search Eagle, Colorado. Help us set a new fundraising record for pediatric cancer this year! And be sure to stop by Avon Auto and Truck because they’re donating $5 to St. Baldrick’s for every oil change they do for the next two months!
