Full heads of hair strolling in, and a lot of bald noggins walking out.

That was the main scene at Blarney Stone Pub on March 12, as area firefighters, police officers, volunteers and shaves descended on the downtown Bismarck, ND, pub for Guns n’ Hoses.

For the second year, Basin Electric was asked to help raise money through the familiar event, which benefits the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Among the 42 registered participants, the top fundraising shaving heroes who emerged victorious during the friendly battle were Gary Schaffer (Burleigh County lieutenant, $1,370 raised), Pat Heinert (Burleigh County sheriff, $1,051 raised) and Luke Teagle (Bismarck firefighter, $780 raised). Last year, Heinert lost his mustache, too.

A total of $7,140 was raised during the event.
