'No Shave November' Update
November 13, 2012 at 2:01 PM (PT)
Checking in on “NO SHAVE NOVEMBER” progress, COLUMBIA NASHVILLE artist CASEY JAMES and his band are still in the lead, having raised $4,440 in the ST. JUDE CHILDREN’s RESEARCH fundraiser so far.
MERCURY RECORDS NASHVILLE VP/Promotion DAMON MOBERLY is leading in the individual participant category at $3,005.
Music industry execs and radio personnel from across the country are participating in the beard-growing competition. By paying a $30 entry, the participants started NOVEMBER 1st with a clean-shaven face. Participants are not allowed to shave for the entire month, however, a third party can pay $30 to make that person shave. Another $30 donation can trump that request. At the end of the competition, prizes will be awarded in several different beard categories.
“NO SHAVE NOVEMBER” donations can be made through FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30th. To donate, or check the leaderboards, click here.
The bearded CASEY JAMES will kick off his “TASTE OF COUNTRY CHRISTMAS TOUR” on THURSDAY (11/15) in ABILENE, TX, alongside fellow TEXANS, JB AND THE MOONSHINE BAND. Tickets for the 11-city tour can be purchased at www.TicketFly.com.
