Officials raised $15,000 last year, hoping to double that amount this year
Aroostook County's 6th annual Planet Head Day will take place on Saturday, Feb. 18, during the 82th "birthday" of the discovery of Pluto. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University of Maine at Presque Isle's Wieden Gymnasium. This unique event celebrates space science while also serving as a fundraiser for C-A-N-C-E-R [Caring Area Neighbors for Cancer Education and Recovery]. To do this, participants raise money to have their heads shaved and painted as planets, dwarf planets and moons.
