Restaurateurs, patrons shave heads to raise money for kids

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Folks at the Hattiesburg Chili's are shaving their heads to raise money for a good cause.

It's their annual fundraiser for St. Jude's Children's Hospital, but the restaurant is putting a new twist on things for the kids.

"Because the kids that go through chemo lose their hair, so we're shaving our heads in honor of the sick kids," said Chili's culinary manager Marcus White.

The restaurant hopes to raise 5,000 dollars by the end of the fundraiser, which is September 21.

They are asking that participants donate 50 dollars, or if they shave their heads, make a 10 dollar donation as well.

As of Wednesday, three employees and one customer had shaved their heads, and others participated the "safe" way and donated money.

To learn more about the fundraiser, call Hattiesburg Chili's at (601)-296-1131.
