The annual Dashwood Head Shave for cancer was a big success Sunday at the Dashwood Fire Hall.
“It was a tremendous success with about 30 head shaves and a few cars being washed,” reported organizer Harvey Twidale.
They raised over $3,200 for the 10th annual head shave, surpassing their goal of $3,000.
This brings the 10 year total to over the $40,000 mark and Twidale said more is still coming in.
“A big thank you to Cheryle and Lynne the shavers, Qualicum Foods and Thrifty Foods for their donations for the barbecue, everyone that came to participate and form a boisterous gallery, and everyone that pitched in to make this such a success,” he said.
“It is so great to see the community come out to support the event and other fire departments’ members who join in the fun and participate.”
Late donations can be dropped off at the fire hall. They can also be mailed to DVFD, 230 Hobbs Road, Qualicum Beach, V9K 2B2.
