The Lake Shore Story...
Lake Shore Central Schools, the home of Bald for Bucks, took over the Kiss 98.5 studio on Wednesday, March 2 to discuss their upcoming Bald for Bucks event with DJ Anthony. Lake Shore is going under the clippers on Friday, March 11.
14 years ago, Tony George, a teacher at Lake Shore, started Bald for Bucks to honor his sister, Cathy, who was battling cancer. Tony never imagined that Bald for Bucks would grow the way it did, raising over $4 million from schools all across Western New York. Tony is exceptionally proud of his students for their ongoing support for Bald for Bucks.
Students shared their reasons for going bald with DJ Anthony, each one being especially unique and meaningful.
When DJ Anthony asked a young girl named Tenley why she was going bald, her response was inspiring, “For the sick people. Some of them lose their hair and they need wigs for their head to keep it warm.”
Others, like Marcus Kowalski, are doing it in memory of loved ones who lost their battle to cancer, “Three years ago I lost my grandfather to cancer.”
We are looking forward to Lake Shore Goin’ Bald for Bucks again this year. Go Eagles!
