ESTERO, FL -- Florida Everblades defenseman Rob Florentino will have his long hair cut and donated to benefit Wigs for Kids following this Saturday’s Everblades game (April 2) against the Atlanta Gladiators at Germain Arena. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
Florentino will have his hair cut in the concourse following this Saturday’s game. His hair will be donated to help construct a wig for a child in need. In addition, Greg Millis, an active member of the Everblades Fan Club will also be cutting his hair to donate to the cause.
Wigs for Kids is a nonprofit organization that strives to help children look themselves and live their lives. The various causes of hair loss in children don’t result in just physical suffering. The change in their appearance can drastically undermine their self-image and sabotage their self-esteem. The organization designs and constructs wigs that will restore the confidence in these children in their daily lives.
Rob Florentino is in his second season with the Florida Everblades. Florentino has volunteered numerous hours to community outreach making community appearances and helping to raise funds for several charitable causes in Southwest Florida.
To help raise money for the actual construction of the wig, a GoFundMe page has been set up for fans to make a donation CLICK HERE TO MAKE A DONATION
