Vet School Professor Shaves Mustache of 40+ Years For Fundraiser

It’s amazing what people will do to raise some money for a good cause. Dr. Buckpitt of the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis offered to shave his well-known mustache off if the students could raise $1,000 for The Josh Project. Anyone who has been a student of Dr. Buckpitt’s will remember the mustache very well as it has been there for 40 years or so. In fact, his wife has never seen him without it! How amazing is that?

As you can tell, the students raised over $1,000, in fact, they almost doubled their goal and celebrated with a public mustache shaving at a Friday Night BBQ at the school on February 24, 2012. Dr. Buckpitt’s wife was there to help and support him, collect the precious hair for keepsake, and teared up after it was done.
