Catholic Priest Raises $65,000 by Shaving Beard and Head

DSC00083.jpgRoman Catholic priest Leo Rancourt found a novel way to raise the money to heat his church, St. Dominique. Rancourt, who has worn a full beard and long hair for 20+ years, accepted a challenge to shave off his beard and his long hair if the members raised $25,000.

"The congregation took up the challenge, and parishioners sold tickets that were raffled off at $25 each for two trips for two, anywhere in the world, valued at $4,000 each, with the additional promise of a haircut and shave. St. Dominique's congregation far surpassed its goal, raising $65,000 to see their priest adopt a new look."
