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.

A West Coast girl, born and raised in the Bay Area in the most non-traditional Hockey Market you could imagine for a long time... When the Sharks came to town it changed the Bay Area hockey landscape forever. Her first love will always be the Red Wings but she has embraced the Sharks since their debut in 1991. She has a passion for minor league grind-it-out-in the-corners hockey. Her heart broke when the ECHL Bulls folded , but luckily the Stockton Thunder are still close enough for her to get her gritty-hockey fix. Besides watching hockey, she is an American Tribal Style belly-dancer and trolls the blue-line, playing defence in a local rec hockey league... A somehow strange but balanced juxtaposition.
