Similar to no shave November where men grow beards to raise money for charity of choice,The Buffalo Police Benevolent Association along with the Buffalo Police Department will be allowing officers to grow beards from November 1, 2016 until December 16, 2016 in order to raise money for cancer research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute

With all the negative press that police all over the country have received for whatever reason, I love to be able to share a story like this showing the best of our men and women in blue

At the conclusion of this event there will be a ceremony where participants will have their beards shaved in front of local media. Last year this program raised over $18,000 for Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
