This fun and unique event challenges community leaders to raise money for Anchor House in an effort to protect their lovely locks of hair!

Thank you to the community leaders listed below.  Following our guidelines outlined below, this group raised over $24,000 for Anchor House!!!

  • Each participant must raise a minimum of $1,000 to NOT have their head shaved at Oktoberfest on Friday, October 5th.
  • Any participant who fails to raise $1,000 WILL have their head shaved.
  • In addition, the participant who raises the most money will have their head shaved.
  • Standings will be updated weekly on the Radio, in the Tribune and on our Facebook Page.
