Six staff members from the Grand View Hotel in Bowen are participating in this year’s Greatest Shave and everyone in the community is invited to come along and cheer them on.
The 2023 World’s Greatest Shave marks the 25th year of one of Australia’s most iconic fundraising events – over two million people have taken part since its inception and an estimated 39,000 kilograms of hair has been removed.
The Greatest Shave raises much-needed funds for the Leukaemia Foundation by challenging people to shave or colour their heads or beards.
This year, the Grand View Hotel’s management team are getting together to host the event and raise money to support this worthy cause.
“At the Grand View Hotel, we believe in giving back to the community, and this event is just one way we’re doing our part,” they said.
“So come along and show your support for our team and help us raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
“Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of those affected by blood cancer.”
Anyone who donates will receive a ticket to enter a draw for a chance to win a hamper and dinner prize valued at over $300.
