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

The community leaders listed below are on a mission.....each of them is trying to raise money for Anchor House through donations from the community.

  • 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.
  • The last 24 hours (5pm 10/4 - 5pm 10/5) is a silent period where no fundraising updates will be provided.
