Monsters Raise Money for Locks of Love

Locks of Love Donation

After capping off two wins against Rochester over the weekend, Monsters Bryan Lerg and JT Wyman made good on their promise to cut their hair and donate it to Locks of Love. Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 who suffer from long-term medical hair loss.

The players made a deal with fans that if they helped raise $1,000 over the course of a few days, they would shave their head after the Pink the Rink game on March 21st. Fans rose to the challenge and exceeded that mark, raising a total of $1,510 in only 5 days.

Locks of Love Donation

The $1,000 mark was cleared on March 20th with a $300 donation by an anonymous donor who said, "Goodbye Flow, but i know it will help many. Go Monsters #monsterstrong"

Monsters Center Garrett Meurs was also on center stage making good on a fan’s donation to the Monsters Community Fund. While he did not have to shave his head, Meurs got a mohawk as part of a bet from the popular Tip-A-Monster event earlier this season

The effort shown by the players and fans is indicative of the Monsters community. To Lerg & Wyman: thank you for making this happen and graciously donating your time & hair to a great cause. To Monsters Fans: your worth to this community and team were on display for all to see. Thank you for everything!
