Hockey + Whiskers = Beard-a-Thon
Hockey fans in the US are invited to join in the tradition of growing their very own playoff beards for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and raise money for charities across the country.
This year Remington joins forces with the 2011 Beard-A-Thon®, with the goal of raising $1 million dollars from among the thirteen NHL clubs participating.
"Get started and grow one for the team! To participate in the Beard-A-Thon simply log onto www.beardathon.com, choose your favorite NHL team, and invite family, friends and business associates to pledge their playoff beards. By receiving pledges, participants promise not to shave until their team wins the Stanley Cup® or is eliminated from the playoffs. Fans who are unwilling or unable to grow playoffs beards can pledge their favorite player, other local celebrities, or build their own beard with the "Build-a-Beard" web application.
Entering your beard into the Beard-A-Thon will also give you the chance to win prizes and special offers from Remington including beard-of-the-week prizes, exclusive promotions and access to free product samples."
Teams participating this year are the Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Redwings, Philadelphia Flyers, Buffalo Sabres Boston Bruins, Washington Capitals, San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings, Nashville Predators, New York Rangers, Phoenix Coyotes, Tampa Bay Lightning and Chicago Blackhawks. To receive updates on Beard-A-Thon special offers, check out the Remington Hair Care & Grooming Facebook Page.
