Just a correction to the article. The event was called "Bald for Bojarski." All the funds raised will be going to the Bojarski family. Teacher's, Jill Bojarski's, son was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The whole community pulled together to do this for such a wonderful and an amazing teacher. Thank you to all you helped out.

Students, faculty, staff and friends at Pembroke Intermediate School raised more than $10,000 this morning in a "Bald for Bucks" program for cancer research.
The young son of one of Pembroke's fourth-grade teachers, Jill Bojarski, has been diagnosed with cancer.
Funds will be donated to the Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
Above, Joyce Saleman, the child's grandmother, has her head shaved by Darlene Curtis. Saleman became quite emotional when the amount of money raised was announced and she spoke to the children, thanking them for their generosity and caring.
