The men of the Alpha Tau Omega chapter at Bowling Green State held their annual philanthropy event called Tau Cuts on March 13, 2018. The men of the chapter, along with men and women from other organizations auctioned off their hair to the highest bidder. The individual who won the auction could then cut and dye their hair how ever they wanted.
The new hair style was then worn for a full week. All the proceeds of the event went to benefit Dance Marathon on BGSU’s campus. The funds are used by the Children’s Miracle Network to pay for medical bills and other expenses of patients and families.
Dejontay Shakespeare explained “we got a bear delivered to our house, that represents our miracle child currently diagnosed with Leukemia. And he relies on the money that dance marathon raises to pay his hospital bills. So I decided that my hair would be worth a life.”
