Bankstown Hotel bar staff, Amy Hall, Julie Sau and Misty Nelson are eager to rid publican, Alan Marshall of his locks as part of the UGLY Bartender fundraiser.
THERE may be a Bankstown publican with a little less hair come November 11.
Bankstown Hotel manager Alan Marshall has volunteered to have his locks shaven for the UGLY Bartender fundraiser to be held over the next few months.
Each year bartenders across Australia help to beat blood cancer by raising money for the Leukaemia Foundation. From car washes to quiz nights to cocktail classes and more, UGLY Bartenders - an acronym for Understanding - Generous - Likeable - You - come up with unique and innovative ways to raise funds.
This year Misty Nelson, who cheerfully keeps customers glasses full at the Bankstown pub, is behind the fundraiser and has raised over $2,000.
"It's a little uncomfortable wearing 'UGLY Bartender' on your shirt behind the bar," she said.
"You can get a hard time from customers. But it's all for a good cause, and it's a bit of fun."
Alan said he was willing to lose his hair for the cause.
"We have been involved in various community fundraisers at the hotel over the years, and I'm more than happy to have my head shaved, if staff can raise $10,000," he said.
The staff at the pub have organised a Friday night meat raffle, and donation jars on the bar, with the big fundraising night organised for November 11.
