It was not too long ago that seeing a mustache in November was a rare occurrence. Now, it feels like the entire month is a real-life version of Anchorman. Whether it's because facial hair is on-trend or because people have actually started concerning themselves with the dangers of testicular cancer, it's hard to tell. But hey, it's progress, either way. Next on the list: baldness -- and no, it's not to raise awareness for premature hair loss. St. Baldrick's Foundation and Team Akerman are hosting a community head-shaving fundraiser to raise awareness for kids who have lost their locks due to chemotherapy. The goal is to raise $60,000 for childhood cancer research.
Taking place at Duffy's Sports Grill in West Palm Beach on Wednesday, the event kicks off at noon with a live broadcast until 2 p.m. by ESPN Radio's Josh Cohen. Around 4 p.m., more than 30 volunteers as well as Team Akerman lawyers and staff will start lining up to have their heads shaved with help from West Palm salon Anushka Salon & Spa. Akerman and St. Baldrick's are encouraging donations for the event. Duffy's Sports Grill is located at 225 Clematis St. in West Palm Beach. Call 561-249-1682, or visit duffysmvp.com.
