Hair Brain Scheme 2008 Fundraiser!

Circle April 5 on your calendar, and plan to come out and support AU’s own Bonnie Nahornick as she shaves her head (for the fourth time!) in aid of two good causes: the event will raise funds for the Alzheimer Society, and Bonnie’s hair will be donated to Wigs for Kids. Her co-worker Aretha Smith will be joining in, shaving her head for the first time, and her hair will also be donated to Wigs for Kids!

The event takes place from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at AUPE Calgary, 600 One Executive Place, 1816 Crowchild Trail NW (next to Village Park Inn). Seating is limited, so RSVP to Bonnie at or by phone at (403) 860-6569.

If you can’t attend but are willing to volunteer before the event, your time and energy will be appreciated. Donations of prizes will also be gratefully accepted.

All prizes are welcome, including gift certificates to stores and restaurants, and prizes from the arts community: if You’re a singer, author, musician, artist, or comedian, donations of artwork, CDs, etc. can help make this the best Hair Brain Scheme yet! All those who volunteer or donate prizes will be mentioned during the event and acknowledged on the Gratitude Website.

For more information or to obtain pledge forms, visit Bonnie’s website.

If you won’t be in the area but want to donate a door prize, just send it along to Bonnie c/o Athabasca University, # 300, 1040 – 7 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB T2P 3G9

Here’s a glimpse of past fundraisers from 2002 and 2004, just to give you an idea of the hair-raising time you’ll be in for!
