After another successful Megabream, Hobie Forster State Title and BETS Forster round in the can, the events were able to tick off another check box by getting Josh Carpenter from lureandfly.com to shave off his hideous beard… all in the name of charity of course.
The lureandfly.com team, in conjunction with ABT, Daiwa, Hobie and BETS, collected gold coin donations from anglers, spectators and ABT themselves to raise a massive $467.35 for the NSW Cancer Council.
Reluctantly Josh parted company with his beard after 6 months. Baby-Faced Carpenter said “At least it was for a good cause”. With his donation being randomly selected, Shaun Chapman had the honours of taking the first hairs off Josh’s face and was presented with a Daiwa Z200 courtesy of Daiwa Australia for his troubles.
Although the beard is gone, you can still make a donation at lureandfly.com and follow the “do your thing” link. So far in 2012 lureandfly.com have donated $2039.85 with a goal to raise $5000 before the end of the year, so jump on and pledge your support for this very worthy cause.
Thanks to the following for your valuable contributions over the weekend.
