St. Baldrick’s Event Chicago
A collegiate doctor in the field of economics once deconstructed the phrase “Time is money.” The professor explained that this commonly quoted principle did not do justice to the value of time. After all, one can always make more money but they cannot create more time. Similarly, every penny one earns is subject to taxation—not so with time. In the doctor’s opinion, this made time the greatest resource available to humankind.
Time is, indeed, an incredibly valuable resource. This is why Continental Mitsubishi is committed to supporting efforts that give the gift of time to children diagnosed with cancer. One way that the dealership honors that commitment is by partnering with organizations like St. Baldrick’s Foundation that raise funds for childhood cancer research. Last year’s event at Continental Mitsubishi was a success, and all parties involved would be joyed to see the 2014 St. Baldrick’s event in Chicago follow in its footsteps.
St. Baldrick’s was founded in 1999 by three Irishmen seeking a way to give back a portion of the good fortune they had received as business partners. The name comes from a combination of “bald” and “St. Patrick,” since the efforts of the foundation focused on raising research funds through pledges of individuals prepared to shave their heads in support of children with cancer. Now 15 years later, the same spirit has spread to communities all across the country, locally evidenced by Continental Mitsubishi’s St. Baldrick’s event in Chicago on March 14.
The event at Continental’s Countryside showroom features a great deal of entertainment, including Irish dancers, food, and raffle prizes. Of course, Continental encourages as many as are willing to consider joining the contingent of supporters looking to buzz their hair for children with cancer. Even if that’s not a step you feel compelled to take this year, donations are gladly accepted as well.
Local residents interested in joining Continental Mitsubishi for the St. Baldrick’s event in Chicago can sign up or donate through Continental’s page on the St. Baldrick’s Foundation website. Be sure to spread the word and raise awareness through Facebook, Twitter, and the like. We hope to see you all in Countryside this Friday, March 14.
