SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A pre-registration and fundraising event was held Friday night before St. Baldrick's Day on Sunday.

It was held at Your Pie in Sandfly.

Ten percent of all food sales between five and eight went to the head-shaving event that fights childhood cancers.

"St. Baldrick's has not very much to do with St. Patrick's except it was a bet done by three guys a long time ago to shave their heads to raise money for cancer. Their goal was to raise like $100 bucks and they raised close to $10,000 so they kind of went with it,” said Yael Eflassy, St. Baldrick’s.

St. Baldrick's fundraiser is Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. at Savannah's City Market.

Nearly 100 participants have registered so far. Their goal? To raise $30,000 dollars.

Our Mike Cihla is the emcee.
