REGION – Make-A-Wish Vermont and ArtsRiot have teamed up for a truly Vermont-style fundraiser: the 2017 Vermont Beardies. Vermont beards from any part of the state and in all shapes and sizes are invited to enter.
Those wishing to participate or support a beard should visit www.vermontbeardies.com to enter, share their reason for participating, and invite friends to support their rise to the top of the Vermont Beardies. Proceeds will support Make-A-Wish Vermont.
March 18, 5 – 7 p.m., is the culmination of Vermont Beardies, and will be filled with contests and judging. However participation in this night’s events is not required in order to join the online portion of the contest.
Make-A-Wish Vermont grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish is often the turning point in child’s recovery. Since 1989, Make-A-Wish Vermont has granted over 750 wishes.
