Cigar City Brewing is Shaving Beards to Raise Money for Pediatric Cancer
Bartenders, employees and friends of Cigar City Brewing, Tangent Brewing and Barley Mow Brewing Company will shave their beards (and some heads) as part of the 6th annual Veredus|HAYS Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge presented by Carrabba’s Italian Grill, a fund raising campaign where more than 200 men, women, and children are going bald to raise funds and awareness for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and select nonprofit organizations. Several head shavings will take place throughout the campaign, which ends in May.
To encourage fans to get involved and donate, the brewery that raises the most during the duration of Cut for a Cure will receive the coveted “Golden Clippers” award, which will be featured prominently in the winning brewery’s location.

WHERE: Cigar City Brewing, 3924 W. Spruce Street, Tampa, FL 33607

Cigar City Brewing Vice President Justin Clark said, “The Cut for a Cure Charity Challenge is a fantastic way to raise money for a very important cause. The Pediatric Cancer Foundation has a wonderful reputation and is a top notch organization. We thought this would be a great way to engage our employees and customers with a program that can help so many people. There’s some great beards on our staff and it will be bittersweet to see them go. I’ll be shaving my head though since I wasn’t blessed in the beard department!”
Pediatric Cancer Foundation executive director Nancy Crane said, “We are so excited to have Cigar City Brewing participate in Cut for A Cure this year! We know many of these men and their beards are a staple in the Tampa brewery scene and we’re honored they are shaving them in the name of pediatric cancer research.”
