The $51000 Shave: Man Shaves Off Beard For First Time In 39 Years

Well it was the culmination of a 2 month fundraising extravaganza! Ralph Lethbridge – AKA Boonie, is well known in Clarenville for his long white beard and as the “Christmas Tree Man”.

He wanted to help raise moned for ALS by shaving off his trade-mark beard – his goal $5000. On Sunday, Jan 24 at the Clarenville Caribous game in front of a full Eastlink Events Centre he did just that – and then some – over 10x his goal.
