Tomorrow after the Canucks Game – a rather unusual fundraiser is being held to support the British Columbia Children’s Hospital Foundation (BCCHF). Since it is customary for hockey fans in Canada to wear a “playoff beard” for the duration of the NHL playoffs every year, it was suggested that shaving those beards off should be done with as much pomp and ceremony as is invested into the games themselves.
Through the generous support of Moods Hair Salon (1070 Mainland Street) in downtown Vancouver, we will be hosting a “beard-off” fundraiser for the end of the NHL playoffs tomorrow night after the end of Game 7. The fundraiser will run until 10pm PST, and there is a suggested minimum donation of $15 per beard.
More details to be announced soon. Or check the Twitter account: @ReachFWD
