The team at East Canton, Ohio-based Barbco, which manufactures equipment for horizontal boring, trenchless excavating and underground manufacturing, held the fund-raiser to give back to children in need of hope and support as part of its celebration of 30 years as a family-owned business. 

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a not-for-profit organization with the aim of raising funds to help find cures for children with cancer. Volunteers sponsored by family, friends, and employers shave their heads or "chop" their ponytails in solidarity with children who typically lose their hair during cancer treatment in order to raise funds.

In addition to its employee volunteers, 15 corporate partners joined in to support the fund-raising efforts, including: SACS Consulting and Investigative Services, JB Jewelers, Kraft Fluid Systems, Alro Steel, NAPA Auto Parts, TRS Trenchless Rental Solutions, National Steel Tube, U.S. Shoring & Equipment, Peace Love & Little Donuts of Canal Fulton, Atwood Industries, Midwest Mole and C. Massouh Printing Services.
