    PITTSBURGH - People shaved their heads for a good cause while Pittsburghers celebrated St. Patrick’s Day Saturday.

    Claddaugh Irish Pub held the event for Saint Baldrick's to raise money for childhood cancer research.

    A group of 50 people who are part of the Shaving Irish group took part in the haircutting.

    Alivia Elphinstone, a young girl who battled cancer, was one of the volunteers who gave up her long locks for the cause.

    “As soon as I didn’t have cancer anymore, my hair grew back. I want to get it cut so I can help other kids who had cancer like me,” said Elphinstone.
