Kyocera bigwigs go bald to raise charity cash
- 21 April, 2004 11:52
Shorn heads and a floor full of hair have helped printer and digital copier manufacturer Kyocera raise $7500 for Cystic Fibrosis Australia.
The company held its first ever Close Shave fundraiser earlier this month and national sales manager, Peter Finn, and managing director, David Finn, both lost their locks in leading by example.
Staff from the vendor’s Queensland division were only too happy to join in the fun by pledging money to see the company bigwigs go thin on top.
The Cystic Fibrosis charity is particularly relevant to Peter Finn, who has two children that suffer from the condition.
Anybody at Kyocera who escaped a shearing this time around has only earned a 12-month reprieve because the buzz of clippers will fill the air again next year to help raise further funds.
