About the Shamrock Shave

In the last 11 years, the St. Margaret Mary Shamrock Shave, through the generous support of our shavee pledges and sponsors, has raised over $400,000 for needy families in our community and those suffering from cancer. This year, the recipients of all event proceeds will be (2) extremely worthwhile charities that will fulfill our mission. They are the St. Vincent DePaul Society and Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
