St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Wants You to Participate in No Shave November Benefit
How would you like to go a month without shaving? The folks at St. Jude Children’s Hospital are holding the second annual, “No Shave November” benefit. This all got started as a little wager amongst Warner Music Nashville (WMN) employees who agreed not to shave for a month. The following year, the stakes got bigger and WMN challenged Music Row and Country Radio into a “No Shave November” competition to raise money for St. Jude kids. Now, No Shave November is an annual, month-long event that involves growing facial hair during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives. Here’s how it works.
This year radio stations across the country will form teams competing against each other and the music industry community in Nashville to raise even more money for the St. Jude kids. Individuals are also encouraged to participate. The cost to enter is $30 per person. On Nov. 1st, the participant or the team will start with a clean shave and post a photo of themselves with that day’s newspaper on the St. Jude registration page to officially enter the competition. Participants cannot shave for the entire month of November (Clean-up shaving will be allowed around the neck and the upper part of the cheeks). On Nov. 30th, participants can gather for “Beard Bashes”, where prizes will be awarded to the finalists and “No Shave November Champions” will be crowned by panels of special judges.
For a $30 donation to St. Jude, a third party can pay for a participant to shave before the end of the month, or trump that request to shave. Participants also can pay $30 to shave before the end of the competition. On Nov. 30, participants are asked to take a picture showing off their final facial hair with that day’s newspaper. All proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. To find out more about St. Jude or how you can help, check out the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital website.
