“Cutting For The Cure” is this Saturday

NEW HAVEN — The New Haven County Firefighters Emerald Society will hold “Cutting For The Cure” 2-8 p.m. Saturday at the Wicked Wolf Tavern, 144 Temple St.


During the society’s St. Baldrick’s Day fundraiser, members will shave their heads for donations toward childhood cancer research. This year, Logan Solomon, 3, of Hamden, has asked the Emerald Society to help him promote this event.

Similar events typically take place each year in the region.

Logan has Down syndrome, and in the fall he was diagnosed with leukemia. His parents, Todd and Robin, have joined with their son to help the event to help put a face on what the St. Baldrick’s Day Foundation is all about.
