The Las Vegas Wranglers took to the ice to shave their heads to raise money for Pediatric Cancer Research after their 4-1 win over the Bakersfield Condors on Sunday March 23rd. The St. Baldricks Foundation has donated over $127 million in research grants to fund Pediatric Cancer Research since their inception in 1999. This year marks the eighth consecutive year the Wranglers organization has participated in the event and the third straight season they have hosted an event of their own. This year they brought in a record high amount for the charity raising $34,583.70 for St. Baldrick’s.
Las Vegas Wranglers players, staff and Wranglers fans lent their support to the cause, shedding their locks for a good cause. Those who went under the razor and shaved their heads include Head Coach and General Manager Mike Madill, Equipment Manager Jeff Maxwell, Director of Ticket Sales Matt Langseth and VP of Sales and Marketing Todd Hutton.
The following 15 players also participated in the on-ice event: goaltenders Travis Fullerton, Mitch O’Keefe and Josh Watson; defensemen Nolan Julseth-White, Nick Wheeler, Greg Coburn, Charlie Cook, Jeff May, Bryce Reddick and Brendan Remple; forwards Geoff Paukovich, Cody Purves, Geoff Irwin, Adam Huxley and Adam Hughesman.
