The Rangers have announced a Beard-A-Thon and we think we should extend it to the Whale as well. Ladies, it’s frightening if you want to be in this one, but you’re welcome to join in on the fun too…We allow for equal opportunity when it comes to facial hair.
THE RANGERS BEARD-A-THON® IS BACK
Blueshirt Fans Invited to Grow One to Support the Garden of Dreams Foundation
New York, NY – The NHL playoffs are like nothing else; the passion, the excitement, and, yes, the playoff beards. In keeping with a great hockey tradition and supporting local charities, the Rangers again invite their fans to “grow one for the team” this playoff season. The Rangers Beard-a-thon® is an opportunity for fans to grow their own playoff beard and raise money for a great cause. All proceeds from the 2011 Rangers Beard-a-thon will benefit the Garden of Dreams Foundation, which makes dreams come true for kids facing obstacles.
This year, several Rangers players will get into the action and grow their own playoff facial hair. Boomer Esiason, host of WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show on MSG Network and Rangers alumni Adam Graves, Rod Gilbert and Dave Maloney will also participate this year.
Participants in the Rangers Beard-a-thon invite family, friends, and business associates to pledge their playoff beards. By joining the Rangers Beard-a-thon, fans pledge to maintain their beard as long as the Rangers remain in the playoffs. Fans who are unwilling, or unable, to grow playoffs beards, can also pledge their friends or favorite Rangers player or alumni. As an added incentive, the Rangers fan that raises the most money will win exclusive Rangers prizes. All donations to the Rangers Beard-a-thon are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
