We take every opportunity to give a shout out to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.  The Foundation is known for rallying volunteers in 24 countries and across all 50 states to raise money by pledging to shave their heads in solidarity with children fighting cancer, and, to-date, has awarded millions in grants for childhood cancer research. Spark Energy began supporting the Chicago events for the Foundation as part of its launch of residential electricity pricing plans in 2011. We had the chance recently to join about 100 other supporters at the Halfway to St. Baldrick’s event at Fado Irish Pub in Chicago.  In addition to supplying gift cards and Six Flags Great America tickets for raffle prizes, we donated $50 for each person who shaved his or her head.  In the end, we cut a check for $1,000 to St. Baldrick’s.  Thanks to everybody who stepped forward to go under the clippers for cancer!
