Throughout the day, family-friendly entertainment will be available, including live music and activities, and some of the city’s most celebrated names in entertainment will take the stage to serve as celebrity head-shavers for those bold enough to brave the shave for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
Those interested in braving a shave for the cause can register online here or onsite the day of the event. Group registration is also available for teams and organizations.
“Last year’s St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event at New York-New York was the top fundraising event in the country. The cause means so much to each and every one of our employees and we look forward to what we hope will be another record breaking year for this lifesaving event,” said Cynthia Kiser Murphey, President and Chief Operating Officer at New York-New York Hotel & Casino. “Seeing people from all walks of life come together to open their hearts and wallets in the name of finding a cure for childhood cancer fuels us to surpass our fundraising goal each year. I’m confident this year will be no different.”
This year’s event will be emceed by Vegas Golden Knights’ in-arena announcers Big D and Mark Shunock and New York-New York Hotel & Casino director of hotel operations James Healy. The roster of celebrity head shavers set to make an appearance includes Las Vegas Aces standout players, cast members from Absinthe, Magic Mike Live, Opium, Chippendales, Human Nature, Fantasy, WOW-The Vegas Spectacular, Legends in Concert, and more.
