Burly Beard Smackdown

Participants in the Burly Beard Smackdown gathered for the first in a series of four photos documenting the men’s hair growth throughout this year’s United Way of Door County campaign.

Participants agreed to forgo shaving their whiskers for the duration of the campaign. Gentleman can still join this challenge and show their support of United Way.

This year’s campaign goal is $480,000. For more information or to donate, call 920.746.9645.
