SACRAMENTO, Calif.--()--Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance, formerly known as Keaton Raphael Memorial, keeps the pipes, drums, and clippers going, raising funds for pediatric cancer research in a grand gathering organized by restaurateurs Henry and Simon deVere and Patrick Mulvaney. This installment of the ongoing duel between the deVere brothers and Mulvaney seeks to make northern California this year’s #1 market in the U.S. for raising funds and awareness for child cancer research through the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Once again, participants are leveraging social media to inspire donations to their respective teams, Mulvaney’s “Sactown Baldies” and “Team deVere’s Bald Crusaders.” Running tallies are kept and donations can be made throughout the month of March and all year at


Emcee Patrick Harbison and Tamera Berg of KCRA Channel 3 will coordinate festivities as Patrick Mulvaney leads his team against Henry and Simon deVere, along with hundreds of shavees and supporters of Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance and St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
