Cover Your Chin for Charity

EASTON — Although it’s too late to enter the Cover Your Chin for Charity contest, there is still plenty of time to donate and become a sponsor.

The 41 contestants, twice many as last year’s, have been working hard to grow their beards and find sponsors to support them. These men are giving up shaving to bring in donations for three charities: Baywater Animal Rescue in Cambridge, Veterans Fund program at the Mental Health Association in Talbot County, and Camp Possibilities.

A tax-deductible donation guarantees you a spot at the award party on Jan. 17, an evening of catered food and drinks from the “donation” bar while enjoying the parade of contestants.

You’ll not only have the chance to enter to win prizes, but also see who receives the “best beard,” “best partial” and “best moustache” awards and who is crowned this year’s winner.

Several sponsors already signed up to donate goods, services or time, but Cover Your Chin for Charity is in need of some additional sponsors to round out this truly unique event. As a sponsor, you will receive a tax deduction, be highlighted on the lively social media presence, featured on the Cover Your Chin website and get warm fuzzies for helping charities. If you would like to become a sponsor, please contact or 443-352-0022.
