Color Me Pink a success!
Now the goal for U.S. Forest Service Gunflint District Ranger Dennis Neitzke is to lose the pink. For the last couple of weeks, Neitzke has been collecting donations for Mush for a Cure by agreeing to dye his silver locks pink. Yesterday the goal of $2,500 was met and Dennis’s wife Debbie, the mastermind of the “Color Me Pink” challenge, got out the pink dye. Neitzke is now sporting a neon pink coiffure.
Mush for a Cure organizer Mary Black said thanks to Chuck Ensign and Charlene Tooley for the final donations that pushed the “Color Me Pink” total to $2,543.39.
Now the challenge is to raise enough money to shave off those pink tresses in The Bald, The Brave, and the Beautiful.” Neitzke is facing Don Kufahl, the Food and Beverage Manager at Gunflint Lodge. Kufahl, a Gunflint Trail Fire Department firefighter is bravely stepping in for Bruce Kerfoot, who is out of the country.
Whoever raises the most money will have his head shaved. Or, if enough money is raised both Neitzke and Kufahl will have their hair shorn in front of the crowd at Windigo Lodge on Friday, March 9.
Black said, “You can keep pledging to Dennis or Don Kufahl as they won’t be getting shaved until Friday night!”
