The $300 Million Shave

Stacey Soble | March 16, 2013 | 9:50 AM

The $300 Million Shave Great Clips stylist Juliana Lindsay, made one of the biggest cuts of her life this week. The President and CEO of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH), John Lauck, got his head shaved at CMNH headquarters in Salt Lake City to follow through on a bet he made with the corporate staff last year. He said he would shave his head if they exceeded their 2012 fundraising goal of approximately $290 million.

CMNH found out they surpassed their goal and raised a record-breaking $300 million. In a celebratory gesture, Mr. Lauck revealed the fundraising results to an unsuspecting staff and lived up to the promise made in January 2012. To commemorate this great accomplishment, Mr. Lauck had his locks shaved off courtesy of Great Clips.

“A shaved head is the least I can do to honor the hard work my team has put forth. I’m looking forward to our staff’s reaction. And a new look,” said Lauck.

Great Clips has been a supporter of CMNH, raising approximately $500,000 in 2012 by selling the iconic Miracle Balloon, as well as hosting events like cut-a-thons and bake sales. Many stylists also donate their own time, visiting member hospitals to cut children's hair.

“We are proud to support the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Rhoda Olsen, Great Clips CEO. “Great Clips stylists, owners, customers and corporate staff raised more than $2.5 million to support Children’s Miracle Network hospitals since 2005.”

Watch the cut happen!
