Updated: 21/Oct/20, 7AM: Just a few hours remaining to donate! $1,000 left to go bald!
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ready to “Go Bob? or Go Bald?”
Well, if you aren’t, Natalie is!
Natalie has been growing her hair long for a few YEARS and is ready to cut it all off for the benefit of others. Based on your donations, Natalie will either cut her hair to a short bob (Go Bob!) or cut it all of (Go Bald!).
Yes, she is willing to Go Bald! to help out two awesome causes (not listed in any particular order…just figured that folks could choose where they want they want their donations to go to…one or both!):
1) TORC and Umstead Coalition’s efforts to preserve the Odd Fellows tract (public land adjacent to Umstead State Park) and to create RDU Forest, an urban forested recreation center on Odd Fellows and extending into Umstead State Park.
Use this link to donate specifically to TORC/Umstead Coalition:
2) le Tour de Femme, an organization which in turn benefits two local charities that help cancer patients, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and the UNC Rex Heathcare Angel Fund.

What do YOU want her to do? With your support…
• $2,000 raised and Natalie will cut her hair by at least 14” inches and Go Bob!
• $5,000 raised and Natalie will cut all of her hair and Go Bald! Yup, she’s willing to cut off all of her hair in honor and support of all those facing or surviving cancer.
Dina Pezzimenti of Halo Salon in Raleigh will be doing the cut…and shave.
Hair will be donated to an amazing organization, Hair We Share. Their mission is to “help maintain dignity, confidence and self-esteem to those affected by medical hair loss.”
The event will be held virtually, for sure. If social distancing restrictions have subsided, we’ll throw a huge party!
Event date: Wednesday, October 21, 2020
Event time: 6:30pm
Location: To Be Determined. Given COVID – this will be a virtual event.
Please join us in cheering Natalie on as she braves the scissors (and shavers) and enjoy the process of Going Bob or Going Bald, all while helping benefit these amazing organizations!
Go Bob or Go Bald! and Go Natalie!
Please know that every donation, no matter the amount, is highly valued! Please also share this event. Thank you very, very much for your support!
