Canes Men Bare It All

Well, just above the neck but a Caniac Girl can dream.

Tim Gleason, Justin Peters, and Troy Bodie bared a bald head for a good cause. The Canes boys shaved their locks for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. The event is one of the world’s largest fundraising events that raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research. The clippers were flying at the Hibernian and Napper Tandy’s in Raleigh as hundreds of folks came to watch or participate in the fundraiser.

The St. Baldrick’s location at the Hiberian had about $157,000 in pledges and Napper Taddy’s  had an impressive $218,000.
