The ChickieFUZZ Challenge, occurring tomorrow night at two locations, fast approaches. The posters are hung, the clippers are sharp, the food is planned, now we just have to


Family members and co-workers have been pitted against each other in this battle for hairlessness.  Local business owner Geoff Walburn of Rivertown Chiropractic has volunteered his locks, and rumor has it that a couple of local attorneys may be sporting new hair-dos.

The importance of raising awareness ranks the ChickieFUZZ Challenge as a life-changing event—just as cancer was for our family last year. Many, many, many people told me,

“There is NO WAY I could shave my head.”

By allowing ourselves to get buzzed we have brought only one of the many side effects of cancer/chemotherapy into the public eye. Anyone suffering through cancer treatments knows that the side effects of the medications can create lots of pain, aches, sickness. Baldness, which should be an easy one, actually causes some great pain. Just ask those ladies who told me that they could never shave their hair.  The ChickieFUZZ Challenges encourages people to consider what life is like without hair, when their only concern is how long it would take to grow out, not whether or not the treatments will “work.”

  • Silent Auction & appetizers at ChickiePoo’s 209 West Main Street starts at 5:00 pm.
  • Head Shavings at Rusted Roots, 321 Mulberry Street clippers on at 6:00 pm
  • Dinner at ChickiePoo’s starts at 7:30
  • Silent auction completed at 8:00.  One need not be present to win, but must leave a contact number.


Thanks to @dloehr for suggesting this fantabulous phrase.

Thanks to all those who have donated for the Silent Auction and to all of those who have collected pledges, made pledges and who will attend this event.

Thanks to all of you who will attend in spirit.

Thanks to all of those who are reading this.
