ClubCorp President and CEO to Shave Head for Children's Causes
Eric Affeldt, 100 Others, to Participate in 10th Annual St. Baldrick’s Day
DALLAS - Eric Affeldt, ClubCorp president and CEO, has announced that he – along with 100 other participants – is shaving his head to raise awareness and funds during the 10th annual St. Baldrick’s Day at Trinity Hall Irish Pub & Restaurant on March 30, 2013, at 10 a.m.
During St. Baldrick’s Day, Dallas’ longest-running event of its kind, Affeldt hopes to raise $100,000 for The St. Baldrick’s Foundation and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
“For years I have been an annual donor to St. Baldrick’s and to Texas Scottish Rite but this year I am putting my money where my hair is,” said Affeldt. “I am asking for support from friends and family and hoping to get the word out to anyone who is interested in helping these two great causes.”
