The kindest cut: Ducks' George Parros to donate his hair for charity

December 11, 2009 |  7:49 pm


Ducks right wing George Parros is about to get his long hair shorn -- for a good cause.

For the third straight season Parros will donate his hair to the Childhood Leukemia Foundation, which helps provide wigs to kids who lose their hair during cancer treatment. This year's event will take place Monday at The Rinks-Huntington Beach, 5555 McFadden Ave., from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. 

Parros will be joined by 50 Ducks fans ages 6 and up who were invited to donate their hair. Sport Clips donated the services of 15 professional stylists to cut participants' hair.

All hair donors will have an opportunity to meet Parros and get a gift to honor their donation. He will be available for pictures and autographs for a suggested $10 donation to the Anaheim Ducks Foundation, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Childhood Leukemia Foundation. Parros’ new apparel line, ‘Stache Gear, will be sold at the event and all proceeds will benefit CLF and Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids.
