Get your pledges in for these Hair Dares ...

Paul Harrington's annual Hair Dare Dukes Days event is not just about "The Dukes of Hazzard" -- it's about cancer, too. Specifically, it's about his mom's cancer, but it's also about cancer anywhere, and the event raises money for the Canadian Cancer Society and their efforts to stop this deadly disease, which BRB's own mother died of earlier this year.

"After finding out that my mom has cancer, I decided to cut my 15" ponytail off for Wigs for Kids, and raise money at the same time for the Canadian Cancer Society," Harrington says. "That was back in July 2003. This August 2007, marks our fifth annual HAIR DARE DUKES DAY WEEKEND CAR SHOW & SWAP MEET & HAIRCUTTING EVENT."

Harrington found a way to combine one of his favorite things in this world, "The Dukes of Hazzard," with a cause that means a great deal to him. This year's event is August 10-12 in Ontario, and BRB will be there signing copies of "Them Dukes! Them Dukes!" See the event poster, with all the crucial details, in the July 3 post of this blog.

You can make a pledge at this site, and Paul has set a goal of $25,000:

To make this truly a family affair, though, Paul's daughter Sarah is also in on the act. She's got some really long hair that she's willing to cut for the cause. Her own goal is $2,500, and she's been working hard to get pledges and has already brought in some good ones:
