  • AJ Debski, 13, of Andover is shown getting a radical trim from haircutter Stacy Dolan of Franklinís Rumours II. In the background, his father Jason gets a cut from Maureen Pezzotta of Pro Haircutters of Rockaway. The two Debskis raised more than $500 for St. Baldrick's.




  • Observers use their cell phones to catch all the action.




  • Kevin Adams of Sparta didnít believe that his radical buzz cut would hurt. Maureen Pezzotta of Pro Haircutters of Rockaway supplied the tools and labor.



Patrons at Franklin's Irish Cottage raised at least $17,000 on Sunday at the Irish Cottage's annual St. Baldrick's Foundation fundraiser.

Last year's event raised $25,000 and the goal was increased this year to $25,000. Ryan said Sunday afternoon that more and more donations are expected to come in over the next month and he is hopeful that the goal will be met.

With music supplied by the Ray Sikora band the interior of the restaurant was tightly packed with a crowd watching the two barber’s chairs and the before and after sequence of folks getting bald for a good cause.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a nonprofit group that raises funds for children’s cancer research.
