City Councillor Fred Burley is raising money for Airdrie and District Victims Assistance Society in a rather unique way.

"Basically, during Movember, I let my beard grow for Movember and at the end of the month I thought, well you know, maybe I can let it grow further and raise some money for a not-for-profit."

From now until February 28, you have the opportunity to purchase tickets at $25 each.

"That ticket enters you into the draw to be the one that wins the golden scissors," said Burley. "And the golden scissors allows you to basically grab hold of my beard and take a big chunk out of it with the scissors."
