Industry to Get Schrager to Shave Again for Kids

Pat Schrager
Last year ElectricalTrends followers helped Pat Schrager of Panduit raise over $7600 for the St. Baldrick's Foundation and he asked if we could help him achieve his 2012 goal - $10,000.

Right now (2/4/12) he is 33% to his goal!

Knowing Pat's sales tenacity and, more importantly, the great work that St. Baldrick's does in helping kids with cancer, it was easy to say "yes".

Upon reaching his goal (which every distributor person knows Pat will do), Pat will be shaving his head.  Last year he did and we've got the pictures to prove it.

2011 St Baldrick's Foundation

So help the kids out and let's see Pat shave off what he grew during the year!  Show that the electrical industry cares!

 (and he's promised to share another picture of his shaved head with us!)

    Hi David, Thank you so much sharing Pat's story and for everyone last year that supported his goal! I just wanted to note that the link above to donate is not working properly. The correct link for Pat is: https://www.stbaldricks.org/donate/participant/512295

    Not sure if this can be updated, but wanted to let you know! Thank you again

  2. Sarah, thanks for the info. I've updated the links in the article
