On Sunday, March 16 — the same day as the parade — Knights of Columbus, Holy Spirit Council 15037 will host a St. Baldrick's fundraiser at two different locations in Plainfield:
- From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the old Plainfield fire station at 15025 S. DesPlaines St., in conjunction with the Village Preservation Association’s Hometown Irish Parade
- From 3 to 6 p.m. at Nevin' Brewing Company, 12337 S. Route 59
Last year, the St. Baldrick's fundraiser at the old fire station raised more than $43,000, thanks to the help of nearly 140 shavees.
