Basin Electric Receives National Recognition

Posted: Updated:

A local cooperative will be nationally recognized for their charitable work in our community. Basin Electric's Brave the Shave event has raised $400,000 this year to raise awareness for St. Baldrick's Childhood Cancer Foundation. And because of the event, Basin Electric will be honored at a summit in California.

Brave the Shave is a head shaving event held around St. Patrick's day to help fundraise for children with cancer. Jennifer Holen, Basin Electric's event coordinator, says it has grown to be so much more.

"It started by Emily McKay, she asked her husband to shave his head for St. Baldrick's childhood cancer foundation and he said sure let's see if we can get Basin Electric involved. It totally blossomed. Each year it grows bigger and bigger and more people are willing to help out," says Holen.
