Hill-Gabbard No Shave February Raises Over $3K

The fundraising total has been split evenly between Lauren's Fight for Cure and the Brady Gabbard Scholarship Fund.

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The community has come together to support two great causes. 

Hill-Gabbard No Shave February took place between January 18 and February 18, culminating at the Lawrenceburg vs. South Dearborn boys varsity basketball game. 

Throughout the month, staff from Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation competing in the No Shave contest, raising funds to be split between Lauren's Fight for Cure and the Brady Gabbard Scholarship Fund. 

Organizer Andy Cline put the fundraiser together as a spinoff of the traditional No Shave November. 

"I kind of thought this would be a different spin off that we could make a little more intimate for the community since we've had two young people from here that have passed away from cancer," said Cline.

Cline tells Eagle Country that over $3,400 was raised through collections, t-shirt sales, and other donations. Cline added that South Dearborn provided $550 through their own t-shirt sales. 

A total of $1,724 has been given to both Lauren's Fight for Cure and the Brady Gabbard Scholarship Fund. 

"I'm surprised, well not so surprised the community came together to support these great causes," said Kline.

Lauren's Fight for Cure is designed to help spread awareness, donates to cutting edge research through the DIPG Collaborative and provides support for young adult DIPG brain cancer families. The Brady Gabbard Scholarship will benefit LHS students who want to go to college or secondary trade school.
