Cale’s friends did not disappoint. They showed up in numbers, and as promised, Cale parted with his beard. The first Beard Extravaganza was a huge success, and guests left excited to participate the next year.
Now in its seventh year, Beard Extravaganza continues to draw bigger crowds and new participants, who spend the entire year growing their beards out for RMHC-EIWI. Each participant collects donations from sponsors who want to see them clean-shaven, and a friend or spouse gets the honor of buzzing off the beard during the event. At the end of the night, participants present checks to RMHC-EIWI following a heart-felt speech from Cale and Jamie.
