The sun is shining, the air is warm, and we have almost three months to go before Winter officially arrives. What better time to slough off that unwanted hair and go for a quick dip before the cold sets in?
The Park’s semi-annual Shake for Charity gives you the chance to do just that and benefit a great cause at the same time.
The event will take place tomorrow from 9:00 am until midnight at the Wishing Well and organizers expect a record crowd to attend.
“We had an unusually hot, dry summer and some of us have seen our coats grow to a length we never thought possible,” says Andras Yak, head of the organizing committee. “This is a great opportunity for Park Animals to share this unusual bounty with others.”
And this season’s event, the second of the calendar year, will include some added touches that Yak says he believes participants will enjoy.
“We are very proud to announce that there will be a team of grooming professionals on hand to assist participants after the Shake. If you’re looking for a new hairstyle or you just want to tame your mane, the talented groomers from Amoltrud’s Aesthetics, The Mane Event, and Tallulah’s Toilettage will be happy to help you, free of charge. It’s all in the spirit of giving,” Yak says.
As usual, volunteers from The Park’s various charities will be on hand to collect hair until midnight. Refreshments will be available, as well, courtesy of The Compost Heap, Florette’s Fine Edibles, and Clowder.
So — come one, come all! Get up and out and shake yourself silly for the benefit of others!
If you have a coat, share it with those who don’t!
