We’ve had people climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, parachute from a plane and sumo wrestle for Progeria – all wild and crazy events that made us laugh and shake our heads with wonder at the lengths people will go to support Progeria research. Here’s another one – we invite you to think of a unique way to raise money, too

Savage and Associates employee Benji Steinberg told his co-workers if they raised $500 he would shave his (very) full head of hair off. They ended up raising almost $900, and Benji was true to his word – the “event” took place in the company parking lot with a huge crowd, an emcee and good-natured Benji in a hula skirt!


Ohio chapter leader Tim Halko gives fellow worker Benji a close shave.

 

 

And the fun didn’t stop there – Stacey Rankin then told everyone at work that she would shave her head if they raised $30,000. Company leaders then “punk’d” her by presenting Tim with a “check” for $30,000! After a very stressful few minutes for Stacey they told her it was a joke.

With a company match, Savage and Associates employees have raised over $6,000 for PRF.
