We’re changing things up this year for our Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day Party, September 17th. We’re sponsoring a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation – a cross between St. Patrick and baldness. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation raises money for kids with childhood cancer. We’re looking for volunteers to get their head shaved, that evening at the pub. (Phil is signing up so you’d better too!) All volunteers then need to get people to sponsor them to have their head shaved – that’s how we raise the money. Everyone who volunteers will receive a $20 gift card to the Embassy and lots of good karma and brownie points in heaven (if that’s what you believe in). Robert Frank from Euphoria Salon will be our barber for the evening, and we’ll have live music going throughout. So check out our website at http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/eventid/6815/eventyear/2011 sign up to be a shavee, and SPREAD THE WORD!!

The idea emerged from owner Jerry Hembury. Back in his lifeguarding days, Jerry used to compete in rough water swims in Southern California.The La Jolla rough water event would give ” Survivor Medals” if you completed the swim. Jerry liked the idea and brought it with him to Durango. This Saturday for the first time, riders (not racers) in the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic will receive a medal when they reach Silverton. The medal was based on a previous Iron Horse poster and designed by the Irish Embassy’s marketing and graphic designer, Cindy Coleman. Jerry, Cindy, and Embassy manager Phil Brennan sat with Race Director Gaige Sippy and Patti Zink and brainstormed their idea earlier this year. The Embassy has wanted to provide this sponsorship for many years and are very excited to have their idea come to fruition. We want to wish all the riders good luck, and we’ll see you in Silverton! http://www.durangoherald.com/article/20110527/ARTS02/705279977/Iron-Horse-finishers-to-be-rewarded-with-medal
