Town of Southington Employees will be participating in a NO SHAVE NOVEMBER event to benefit cancer research. 

Town Police officers, who donate $50.00 to the Saint Francis Foundation care of the Curtis D Robinson Center for health Equity, will be growing facial hair in support of this great cause from November 1st through November 30th.  

Town Employees will also be participating in this year’s event. Employees who wish to grow facial hair for the month of November can make the $50.00 donation to the foundation.  Employees who do not wish to grow facial hair or who cannot, can also make a donation.

All monies collected will be presented to the Curtis D Robinson Center for health Equity/Saint Francis Foundation at the Sculptures Salon located at 550 North Main Street during a charity Shave off event on December 9th.  Participants who wish to have a shave and hair cut can donate $15.00 and Sculptures employees who are donating their time will provide the shaves and cuts.  All proceeds from this final event will be added to the fundraising total.
