A Charity Moment – Alberta Government Head Shave

One of the great things about photography is that it provides me with a way to give back to the community and get involved in worthwhile causes.  Once again this year I volunteered my services to provide photography coverage of the Alberta Government Employee’s “Take it All Off” head shave event in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. A total of 34 individuals “Took it All Off” and another 15 dyed their hair to raise money for the Cancer Society. The final numbers are still being calculated but over the past few years this event has raised over $1,000,000 to help fund research and other programs with the goal of putting an end to cancer. Other volunteers included the ladies from Jagged Edges Hair who donated their time and expertise to the cause and Yukon Jack from 100.3 The Bear who volunteered to MC the event. Fat Franks was also on hand selling hotdogs and donating a portion of the proceeds from each sale to the effort.

Congratulations to the organizing committee on another successful event and I look forward to attending next year’s event. Here are a few photos from this year’s event. Enjoy!
