Breweries Brave A Shave For St. Baldrick’s -- Boundary Stone in Bloomingdale will host its annual fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation on March 12 at 3 p.m. The event will raise funds for the St. Baldrick’s foundation’s childhood cancer research, and local teams will compete to collect donations before taking their turn in the barber’s chair. Among these teams are representatives from three local breweries: Atlas Brew Works, DC Brau and Port City Brewing. Shaves will be provided courtesy of event partner Barber of Hell’s Bottom and participants will get their shaves on site at Boundary Stone the day of the event.
