Local car dealership donates beanies for Brave the Shavers

St. Baldrick's 2013

Brave The Shave beanies!

When people shave their head for St. Baldrick’s, you hear a common refrain right after: “My head feels really chilly.” Now, there’ll be a fix for that.

Kupper Automotive, consisting of Kupper Chevrolet, Kupper Subaru and Bismarck Motor Company, is donating about 350 beanies for all shavees and those who are getting their hair cut for St. Baldrick’s in Bismarck.

Bob Kupper, Kupper Automotive owner, says he got the idea from a good friend. “I’m friends with Bob DesRoches. His daughter, Amber, is who Amber’s Dream at Sanford Health in Bismarck, ND, was named after. We’ve donated money to several St. Baldrick’s shavees in the past, and when Bob brought this idea to us, it just sounded like a good fit,” Kupper says. “The St. Baldrick’s cause is a great one. We just want to show our support for the people who are brave enough to have their heads shaved to promote research for childhood cancer.”

Kupper Automotive representatives will be at the Bismarck Brave the Shave events to hand out the beanies.
