In August of 2010 Joy Mehuren was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her lifelong friend, Lori Mayer, decided to hold a benefit for Joy at her restaurant in Liberty. Soliciting donations from her Lori’s Café patrons, in a testament to how much both women were loved by their community, it didn’t take long for Mayer to raise a sizeable sum. Overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support at the event, Mehuren made her promise to continue the event annually to support others who battled the dreaded disease. As they say… “The rest is history. “

This year’s ‘Joy to be Bald’ recipients will benefit Ralph Colson and Nancy Soule, both of whom are battling cancer. The benefit will be held on Saturday, October 7 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, beginning with the annual Walk-A-Thon at 11:00 am at the Walker School, Route 220, Liberty, and ending at the Liberty Fire Department, followed by festivities at the Lake St. George Brewery on the corner of Marshall Shore Road, Liberty and Route 3 at 12:30 pm. There will be a ‘Macaroni and Cheese, Chili and Whoopie Pie Bake Off’ judged by attendees, with raffle and Head Shaving wrapping things up between 2:00 – 3:00 pm.

The success and sustainability of Joy to Be Bald can be attributed to the hard work of the organizers and the desire of the past recipients to pay it forward and help someone else. This year’s T-shirt is a re-release of an original design by Trinity Frost, daughter of former recipient Kelley Ripley. 

Mayer, who puts the ‘fun’ in Fundraising, will be shaving her head again this year, as will Lori’s Café employees, Heather and Deb, as well as Dan from Lake St. George Brewing. We’d love for you to come join in the fun!
