The “Shave Your Lid Event”
After his first round of chemo, and his brief release from the hospital, Bill’s family, friends, and business associates decided to hold a charity event that would be the initial fundraiser to start his legacy. It was a “Shave Your Lid Event” with half of the proceeds going towards the “Bill Beattie Memorial Endowment Fund” (the other half went to kids cancer). In total, more than 67 people shaved their heads, including his daughter and son-in-law and another 10 donated their hair to make wigs. The event was a huge success and raised more than $325,000 to start the Fund which is managed by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.
