Tomorrow is the annual Saint Baldrick's event. Volunteers shave their heads to support kids fighting cancer.

They're expecting a big turnout tomorrow. Event coordinator Beth Anne Rekowski says, "We have a huge array of people who will be joining us. At least 40 will be shaving. More depending on who decides to have their head shaved the day of the event."

For the past 10 years, Saint Baldrick's has raised more than $87 million dollars. Funds go directly to cancer reserach experts to help find a cure and improve the quality of life for patients.

The Merrill St. Baldrick's event will start at 4pm tomorrow afternoon. They hope to raise $45,000.
