The Chicago Blackhawks are headed towards the Stanley Cup, which means it’s time to start growing that playoff beard!
We’re not just talking about the players either!
The team is looking for fans to do the same!
Every year that the team makes the playoffs, the Blackhawks hold their Beard-A-Thon to raise money for the Chicago Blackhawks Charities!
Fans pledge money on how long they’ll keep their beards and in past years the program has raised over $3.5 million bucks, a bunch of which goes to help programs at Chicago Public Schools!
The Blackhawks kick off the playoffs tonight at the United Center against the Nashville Predators.
