OSWEGO COUNTY PROCLAIMS MARCH AS ST. BALDRICK'S MONTH

The Oswego County Legislature proclaimed March as St. Baldrick's Month in Oswego County at its monthly meeting. The St. Baldrick's Foundation works to raise awareness and funding to support childhood cancer research and fellowship. So far this year, more than 170 Oswego County men, women and children have volunteered to shave their heads and raise money to support this cause. They include the Oswego Minor Hockey Association, Oswego County Sheriff's Department, the Oswego Firefighters Association, and many other groups and individuals from throughout Central New York. Last year, their efforts brought in more than $93,000 and this year the goal has been set at $100,000. Come to the Lake Ontario Conference and Event Center, 26 E. First St., Oswego on Sunday, March 30 to join the drive as the SUNY Oswego athletic department sponsors the 8th annual Oswego St. Baldrick's Foundation fundraiser. Pictured are Mark McManus, Oswego City Fire Department; Brooks Hourigan, Oswego City Fire Department; Oswego County Legislature Chairman Kevin Gardner; Joe DiBlasi; Tyler O'Grady; Deputy Todd Delmar, Oswego County Sheriff's Department; and David Turner, director of Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning.
