Hunterdon County Courthouse glows gold to fight childhood cancer

Head Shaving Fund Raising Event Sept 26 At Sergeantsville Fire House

FLEMINGTON, NJ (Hunterdon County) – Hunterdon County’s Historic Courthouse in Flemington is glowing gold throughout September, by order of the County’s Board of Commissioners, in recognition of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation ‘Light It Up Gold’ for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, supporting efforts to find a cure for childhood cancer.

Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Deputy Director John E. Lanza, the sponsor of the proclamation supporting the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, said, “The volunteers of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, led in Hunterdon County by Linda and David Swackhamer of Delaware Township, work tirelessly in fundraising for childhood cancer research.”

“By lighting the courthouse gold throughout the month, the board wishes to acknowledge that work and bring greater awareness to the fact that childhood cancer is the number one cause of death by disease of children,” Lanza said.

St. Baldrick’s will join with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Run and Walk in hosting a head shaving event and auction fund raiser, on Sunday, September 26 at the Sergeantsville Fire House from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 pm., Lanza said.

“I will again be participating in the head shaving event and invite others to join me in raising funds for St. Baldrick’s. And if you are not brave enough to have your head shaved, you can still contribute this incredibly important cause,” Lanza said.
