SEATTLE – Every year at Fado Irish Pub, along with the brisket and beer, the patrons go bald for the wee ones.

St. Baldrick's Day parties all across the nation raise money for childhood cancer research.

Last year, more than $12 million in grants were awarded.

According to the St. Baldrick's Foundation, each year 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer worldwide.

To date, more than 106,000 people have shaved their heads in solidarity in 50 states and 24 countries.
