    Shiny Heads, Warm Hearts

    by Linda Mittiga, Sayville Schools Public Relations

    Sayville Middle School Sixth-graders put their shaved heads together to help children with cancer.

    Using his head to raise money for cancer research, Sixth-grade Sayville Middle School student Kenny Corrao encouraged his friends to make a small sacrifice for kids with cancer.  Recently at the Bluestone Tavern in West Sayville, he and twenty-two others participated in a St. Baldrick’s fundraiser by having their heads shaved.

    From their website: “St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events began as a challenge between businessmen and have grown over the years, raising critical funds for childhood cancer research. Events take place in pubs, restaurants, schools, churches, parks, malls, military bases, firehouses and any other place you can imagine….  St. Baldrick’s is committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives.”

    The twenty-three boys from Sayville schools who raised over $12,000 for this worthy cause are to be congratulated:

    1. Andrew Watson
    2. Nicholas Watson
