Gentlemen, it’s almost time to liberate yourselves from at least one form of
tyranny grooming for a full month. The Second Annual “No Shave November” competition for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital gets under way and squeaky clean on Thursday, Nov. 1.
All participants in this fuzzy fundraiser must begin November with a clean shave and post a photo of themselves with that day’s newspaper. On Nov. 30, participants will repeat the process with their final facial hair. On that day, Nashville-area participants will also gather for the annual “Beard Bash” where prizes will be awarded and a “No Shave November Champion” will be crowned. Cost to enter is $30 and registration is open at www.stjude.org/noshavenovember through tomorrow. Check out the event’s Facebook page here. Warner Music artist Charlie Worsham has written a catchy theme song for the event, and WMN also has t-shirts for sale.
The competition originally began as a friendly wager among co-workers at Warner Music Nashville and has now turned into a major fundraiser for the nonprofit hospital. The fundraising goal for 2012 has been set at $100,000 and Country Radio employees nationwide are encouraged to participate.
All clean-shaven participants in Nashville are encouraged to gather for a kickoff photo at Warner Music Nashville on Thursday, Nov. 1 at 10 am/CT.
