On Wednesday, February 18th, DCU Cancer Soc teamed up with ESOC to hold its first fundraising event of the semester: Shave or Dye.
The fundraiser was held in Nubar with House of Colour assisting with the shaving and dying, with music provided by DCU DJ society. A total of eight heads were shaved or dyed (three dyed and five shaved) on the night, including DCU’s education officer, Gary Gillick.
Participants raised money through online giving accounts. According to the society’s vice chair, Saoirse Fitzgerald, “We still haven’t counted the money—but it’s looking to be over 2,000 euro.”
Since it’s formation in 2014, DCU’s Cancer society has set out with an aim to promote cancer awareness and raise funds for research through various society events.
Much like the society’s November campaign, “Moustache You a Question”, the fundraiser was a huge success and bodes well for future events and fundraisers the year will bring.
