Donations to benefit St. Baldrick's Foundation for Rose Pugliese made between June 9 - 16, 2014 were eligible for today's drawing.
"Thank you to all of my donors for your generous response. A special thanks to Vaughn College for their donation of the Country Jam tickets," states Commissioner Rose Pugliese. "Within just the past week, we have received over $1,900 in donations. At $3,000 in donations to date, this has not only raised awareness for childhood cancer research needs, but has also shown the benevolence of those I have the privilege of knowing."
Commissioner Pugliese's goal is to raise $5,000 by June 23rd in anticipation of the third annual Grand Junction St. Baldrick's head-shaving event taking place Saturday, June 28th in Grand Junction. At a Public Hearing on June 23rd, Mesa County Commissioners will present a Proclamation declaring the week of June 23 - 29 as St. Baldrick's Week in Mesa County. At the conclusion of this hearing, Commissioner Pugliese will shave her head in support of this worthy cause.
