Sabres go bald for bucks to raise money for cancer research

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Sabres announced they will partner with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center throughout February to support Bald for Bucks through several initiatives. 

Sabres studio analyst Martin Biron and play-by-play announcer Dan Dunleavy will both shave their heads live on air during the March 5 Sabres vs. Pittsburgh Penguins game. 

Dunleavy recalled his own family's struggle with cancer in the Sabres press release. 

“The disease has directly touched every member of my immediate family, as well as many friends. I recall my sister, too early in her life, worrying about losing her long hair during life-saving treatments. Taking part in Bald for Bucks is an easy way to honor my family’s battle and show everyone in this fight that they are not alone," Dunleavy said.  

The Sabres will also have a limited-edition Bald for Bucks Sabers Golden Season T-shirt for people who donate over $50 to Bald for Bucks. Donors who receive the shirt will also be entered to win autographed gear, tickets and meet-and-greets.

“The Sabres’ support of our mission makes such a difference in our ability to conduct cutting-edge research and provide compassionate care programs for our patients,” said Candace S. Johnson, PhD, Roswell Park President and CEO.

Those interested in donating can do so at Sabres.com/BaldForBucks or at the Key Bank Center during the Feb. 1, 9, 23 and March 5 home games.
