Hofstra’s St. Baldrick’s Day Fund Raiser

The Zarb School proudly supports this fund raiser.

Thanks to the tremendous efforts of Tom Kostiw and the Hofstra Roller Hockey club along with former Dean of Students Pete Libman, the St. Baldrick’s Day fund raiser has become a signature university-wide event that brings us together in support of childhood cancer research.

Sadly, Pete passed away last year after his own courageous struggle with cancer. Those of us who worked with Pete as he helped this event to flourish, request that you honor his memory by participating in this year’s fund raiser.

To join Pete’s Pride team and raise funds, or to donate to Pete’s Pride team visit: https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/1659/2015

The event will take place this March 11, 2015 during common hour in the Sondra and David S. Mack Student Center Atrium. The event challenges Hofstra faculty, staff, students, and community members to collect donations, setting a goal which if met the participant will shave their head. Last year Hofstra raised over $34,000 and Provost Herman Berliner made good on his promise to shave his head if enough money was raised.

This year, the Provost has agreed to do a command, repeat performance if $40,000 or more is raised! My partner in crime at the Center for Civic Engagement, Mario Murillo, and I are much cheaper at $500 a head if donations are made on the website through us as participants.

Thank you for your support.
