Last year, Brent Burns had his teammates shave his head and beard. He raised nearly $25,000 for two charities.
This year, Burns recruited a few of his teammates (Pavelski, Mueller, Goodrow, Tierney, Sheppard) and some professional stylists to shave their hair. Through Saturday night, more than $15,000 was raised (you can still donate for the rest of this week).
SF Zoo had a guest introduced to the fans in attendance (who preferred the warm, rather than the cold rink). Monies raised for the zoo will be used for special hammocks for the gorillas.
The fans were trying to get Brodie to grab a chair to join the cause. (Maybe next year.)
Lots of smiles and fun.
