QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — On Tuesday, Governor Charlie Baker has gotten his hair cut once again for charity alongside former and current New England Patriots players.
Along with Baker, former Patriots players like Kyle Van Noy and David Andrews joined in to get their heads shaved during the ninth annual "Saving by Shaving" event from Granite Telecommunications' headquarters in Quincy.
Other attending former Patriots representatives were Matt Light and Joe Andruzzi.
According to Granite, the event ended with a check of five million dollars being sent to Boston Children's Hospital and the loose hair donated to Hair We Share to create wigs for those with medical hair loss. Though he did not get a buzz cut, Patriots Quarterback Mac Jones made an appearance to which his arrival had Baker exclaiming.
"Dude he's a kid! Oh my God!" Baker said as Jones walked in.
The money raised for BCH will go to fund pediatric research and treatments for The Every Child Fund at BCH, which aims to fuel lifesaving research for children patients, Granite said.
