A half-dozen staffers at WFLD Chicago, including anchor Patrick Elwood (below), got their heads shaved this morning to raise money for pediatric cancer research. It’s part of the St. Baldrick’s program, which entices people to celebrate St. Patrick’s with a cleanly shorn head in the name of charity.
The WFLD participants/victims spanned both genders; Good Day Chicago e.p. Melinda Tichelaar gave it up for the cause as well.
