        The Arcadia Firefighter's annually participate in a fundraising event called St. Baldrick's to help find a cure for pediatric cancer.  St. Baldrick's raises awareness and funding by encouraging volunteers to shave their heads.  The AFFA has been partnering with the St. Baldrick's Foundation and the City of Hope in Duarte to help encourage our local pediatric cancer patients and their families.  This year we will be giving four children from the City of Hope Pediatric Ward a ride in our fire engines from the hospital to the St. Baldrick's event. Upon our arrival, we give the shears over to the kids and let them shave our heads.  It is a very touching and encouraging moment. The event raised over $30,000 this year, hosted at MattDenny's Alehouse on Huntington Drive. Be apart of our team when we shave again in March15, 2012.
