MADISON, NJ - Sunday's "shaving party" resulted in $64,000 donated funds to the national St. Baldrick's children's cancer research program.

Madison program founder and resident Holly Selquist reported Monday afternoon to TAPinto Madison that the town's teams fund totals raised are at $64,000 currently, but they were still receiving money.

At 2 p.m. the first shavees arrived at Downtown Salon on Waverly Place, including Tory J fourth-grader Will Baisch, who also received the "Squire of Hope" award for kids who have participated three years. Baisch was joined by 17 students from TJS and their principal, Mike Post, who braved the shave.

Shavees were caught on closed circuit TV being shown live from Poor Herbie's Bar & Grill where the party was really taking place.

Brothers, Michael McGuire (fifth grade) and his younger brother Luke (first grade) both had their heads shaved, making the day a family affair. 

The Waverly Place streets were closed during the event and Madison was taken over by kids and adults who all were either participating or there to lend moral and financial support to the cause.   

This is the third year for the event in Madison.

Visit the St. Baldrick's website and find "Madison" to get involved.
