A COVID project featuring Jeff Hall’s beard turned into a fundraiser for the Drumheller and District Humane Society. Hall, of Meyers Norris Penny, decided in December of 2020 to begin growing out his goatee and was not going to shave it until restrictions were relaxed. As it grew he decided to make some good out of it. He and his wife are animal lovers and approached the Humane Society. They settled on a goal of $5,000 for him to shave it. Along the way, the beard took on many different looks including a bright green dye job to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and eventually a rainbow look. Eventually, they raised $6,250 and the beard was shorn. On Wednesday, May 4, Hall presented the donation to Brooklynn LaGresley of the Humane Society.
