Basin Electric is in its eighth year of fighting children’s cancer through its annual Brave the Shave events. There are several events going on throughout ND, SD and WY during the month of March, so go ahead and find an event near you. We’d love to have you join us!
Brave the shave’s flagship event:
Basin Electric’s main Brave the Shave event will take place March 13 at the Missouri Valley Family YMCA in Bismarck, ND. In addition to hair cutting and head-shaving, the event will include a photo booth, children’s crafts, knighting ceremony of seven-year shavees, silent auction, face painting, balloon creations, and local mascots, including our very own Princess Baldina. Several children and families will also be honored at the event. New this year will be a Brave the Shave merchandise shop featuring signature hats, beanies, T-shirts and more, with proceeds going to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
