On Wednesday April 12, we will be holding the third annual St. Baldrick’s event in Palo Alto. Together at SAP, we are targeting to raise $200,000 to help fight cancer. There are many ways to participate, and we hope to see you there.

Ways you can help:

  1. Pull some friends and colleagues together to raise some money on behalf of St. Baldrick’s. Bill is offering a “Dinner with Bill” for the employee or partner (+guest) that raises/donates the most for the event. This is a fantastic way to get your teams and your partners involved.
  2. Volunteer or attend the event. Be there to support our colleagues.
  3. Join Team SAP to sign up and shave your head/donate 8” of your hair to show solidarity.
    There is still time for folks on your team to sign up and compete to raise money. Every little bit helps.
  4. Sponsor a colleague who is shaving their head/donating their hair. There are many colleagues on Team SAP you could sponsor, including a few SAP female colleagues who will be shaving or cutting their hair as well.

This is a special event which goes beyond raising funds for a worthy cause. It’s a fun, enjoyable evening full of inspiration – an experience to remember. Highlights include:

  • SAP will be donating twenty 49ers tickets to the top team
  • Joe Staley, 49ers Offensive Tackle, will be present to sign autographs
  • There will be two Stanford doctors, who are both St. Baldrick’s grant recipients, speaking about the importance of the grants to their research
  • There will be a few kids present who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer at Stanford at the event. One or two may speak on stage about their fight
  • A woman cancer researcher from Stanford will be shaving her head
  • The Palo Alto Firefighters have pulled together a team (two of the shavees are women) and are donating two authentic firefighter helmets
  • A group of 30 local kids ages 6-14 will be shaving their heads again this year and last year they raised $45K collectively!
  • Raffle, food and drinks
