AtlantiCare No-Shave November raises funds to aid cancer patients

AtlantiCare will hold its third annual No-Shave November Heroes of Hair fundraising campaign through Nov. 30.

As part of Heroes of Hair, the AtlantiCare Foundation encourages members of the community, providers and staff to let their hair grow during November and donate the money they would have spent on shaving and haircuts to the AtlantiCare Treasure the Moment Fund. Participants can grow a beard, cultivate a mustache, skip a waxing or hair appointment, or simply donate.

The Treasure the Moment Fund assists cancer patients with expenses including wigs, prostheses and more, allowing them to focus their energies on healing.

AtlantiCare will host a wrap-up event 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 29 at Hidden Sands Brewing Co. in Egg Harbor Township. All participants and those who donate a minimum of $25 to the campaign are invited. Participants are encouraged to bring before and after photos.

Campaign participants can create individual or team fundraising pages or simply choose to donate without setting up a page at AtlantiCare.org/noshave. For more information, call 609-407-2259.
