The La Salle Squires of St. Hyacinthe Parish in La Salle hosted a "Brave the Shave" event on Nov. 3 in support of breast cancer research.
Squires members Wyatt Bellisle, Philip Duchominsky, Owen Lagacé, Joel Comeau, Zachary and Maxim Bosc, Logan and Jared Tardiff, and Braeden Mogg, as well as church parishioners Suzie, Claude and Matthew Lagacé, Gerald Hogue and James Lane, and State Deputy of the Knights of Columbus Paul Dupré took part in the event.
The Squires and other participants started collecting pledges in mid-September with a hope of raising $2,000 by Nov. 3. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, they were able to raise $7,360 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The La Salle Squires would like to send out a thank-you to Kristine Carino and Nadia Pries for their hairstyling services, those who pledged so generously, the supporters, and sponsors La Salle Credit Union, Domain Co-op, Western Turbo, Mary Kay Cosmetics, PartyLite Winnipeg, Celebrations Dinner Theatre, Suzie Lagacé and Nicole Kirouac, who donated items for this event.
