Rock the Bald with St. Baldrick’s:
Hawthorn Mall invites the community to “Rock the Bald” during a fun-filled virtual St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event to raise money to help find a cure for childhood cancer. The event is being held in cooperation with St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-powered charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any other organization outside the U.S. government. Anytime between now and Wednesday, March 31st, participants are invited to videotape themselves having their heads shaved, then share the video on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #rockthebaldathawthornmall.
For those who want to help, but just can’t part with their lovely locks, there are also opportunities to volunteer or donate to the cause. Several incredible prizes will be awarded to the top fundraising participants, including a football signed by Allen Robinson and a 2020 NFL mini helmet signed by Cole Kmet of the Chicago Bears. Those who raise $50 or more may pick up a complimentary t-shirt between March 22nd and March 31st, and teams that raise the most in donations can pick up their medals and fundraising prizes between April 5th and April 9th in the mall’s Management Office; ID required.
On April 1st, one lucky shavee will be randomly selected to receive a $200 gift card to the Hawthorn Mall retailer of their choice. To learn more, to donate, or to register to rock the bald, visit http://ow.ly/nifg30rujhn.
Now – March 31st (Video Submission Deadline)

Located in Vernon Hills, Illinois, Hawthorn Mall has been the preferred shopping and dining destination in Lake County since 1973. While the center currently boasts more than 120 specialty retailers, including Lake County’s only Maggiano’s and a state-of-the-art AMC Hawthorn 12 theater, Hawthorn has recently embarked on a comprehensive redevelopment that will transform the property from a traditional shopping center into a master-planned mixed-use development. This redevelopment, which represents the largest capital investment in the property since its grand opening nearly half a century ago, will redefine the customer experience and expand the center’s trade area by creating a new and distinctive sense of place that will continue to evolve with the community for generations to come. To learn more, visit the Hawthorn Mall website at www.ShopHawthornMall.com and follow the center on Facebook and Instagram
