Warner's 'No Shave November' Becomes Fundraiser For St. Jude
October 4, 2012 at 10:56 AM (PT)
What started as a light-hearted wager among co-workers at WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE has turned into a challenge to MUSIC ROW and Country radio to raise $100,000 for ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL. “NO SHAVE NOVEMBER” has become a fundraiser by asking radio stations and people in the music industry to rally teams together with a goal of at least 100 participants.
It costs $30 to sign up for this second annual event and on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1st, participants will have a clean-shaved face and post a picture of themselves with that day’s newspaper on their fundraising page to enter the competition. On FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30th, participants will post a picture with their bearded faces and that day’s newspapers.
Afterwards, “NO SHAVE NOVEMBER” participants will be invited to a “Beard Bash” in NASHVILLE, TN, where prizes will be awarded and a champion will be selected by celebrity judges.
Last year, some of the awards included “The Whisker Award” (the beard that raised the most money) which went to BILLY GREENWOOD, “The MVP Award” (the person who did the most to spread the word about the event) to COUNTRY AIRCHECK’s CHUCK ALY, “The More Salt Than Pepper Award” (the beard with the most gray) to MERCURY NASHVILLE’s DAMON MOBERLY, and “The Shoulda Shaved NOVEMBER Award” (the worst beard) went to WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE’s BOB REEVES.
