Richmond’s Largest And Only Irish Event Of Its Kind Is In Innsbrook For The Eighth Year!
March 18, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Innsbrook is gearing up for the annual St. Paddy’s Palooza! It’s going to be a day of fun for the whole family, rooted in a great cause with The St. Baldrick’s Foundation as our charity partner. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and giving survivors long and healthy lives.
We are looking for men and women to volunteer to be “shavees” for the event to bring the slogan, “Going Bald For A Cure,” to life. These volunteers collect donations for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to support cancer research. In exchange for the funds, volunteers agree to have their heads shaved to show solidarity with children who lose their hair during cancer treatment.
Going Bald Not Your Thing?
-Sign up to be a volunteer at the event (must be 15 years or older)
-Donate to our many charity buckets the day of the event
-Step up to donate and show your support for a shavee live at the event

We are pleased to have the privilege to dedicate this year’s St. Paddy’s Palooza to Beckett Wyatt. Beckett is 9-years old and lives in our community. He has stage 4 Ewing’s sarcoma, a severe childhood cancer. Please take the time to read Beckett’s story written by RTD journalist, Katie Demeria. Thank you to Katie and the Wyatt family for allowing us to share their story.
Stop by to participate as a shavee, make a donation, or simply enjoy the community spirit of this event and join in on the fun activities and food options. Let’s pull together to support this great charity.
