As part of Friday's NASCAR Day Telethon at the Sam Bass Gallery in Concord, North Carolina, The Godfather pledged to shave off his 30-year old goatee if listeners pushed donations past the one million dollar plateau. With nearly $400,000 needed and only four hours remaining, it looked like a safe bet. But looks can be deceiving.
Incredible listener response throughout the program, along with a massive donation from our friends at NASCAR.com in the final minutes pushed total to nearly $1.2 million, and forced Moody to break out the razor.
Cold water and a disposable razor made for a fairly uncomfortable shave, but in the end, the job got done! Thanks to everyone who contributed to making the 2007 NASCAR Day Telethon such a rousing success. And by the way, with two weeks off before the next MRN Radio broadcast race, The Godfather pledges to have the goatee back before anyone knows it's missing!
