You’ve got to hand it to the guys – docs and all – from the Hudson Valley Hospital Center who spent a month being really hairy to help out a good cause.
The Winter Whiskers contest – which included a public “shave off” at the Quiet Man Public House in Peekskill on Monday – raised about $15,000 through sponsorships of the beard growers. The event was one part of a larger $5 million fundraising campaign to ease the cost of the cancer center, which opened in November.
Donations can still be made through the hospital’s website.
