The original goal was $10,000, but the stakes were raised and support escalated when Assistant Principal Ryan Doherty and York grad announced that he would lose his long locks if donations topped $15,000. Others who have agreed to be shorn for the cause are as follows.

It was for a great cause!

"We would also like to recognize Samantha and Amanda Neely, who are not shaving their heads, but who have organized their own fundraisers to raise over $2000 for the cause," noted organizer and York High School Spanish teacher Joe O'Malley. Assisting with coordination of the March 24 event are York secretaries Kelly Corry and Bridget Baker.

$20,000 and counting - two more weeks till final total comes in.
