Last year it raised more than $50,000 and this year’s event is on track to raise over $60,000.
All funds raised go in 2019 go to selected Charites like National Centre for Farmer Health, Lifeline Geelong, Movember Foundation, Australian Prostrate Research, Samaritan Hose Geelong, Barwon Health Foundation, Headspace and RUOK.
The wives and partners of the organising committee of the ‘hairy men’ were also involved, giving their time for free to be the front of house wait staff and serving food and drink.
Ross Stevenson form the successful Breakfast radio program on 3AW gave a speech and was ably supported by MC Ian Cover from the Coodabeens weekly radio show on the ABC.
