TQL Managers, Inspired By Marty, Put Their Heads On The Line

Cincinnati – Inspired by Reds radio voice Marty Brennaman, Cincinnati-based Total Quality Logistics (TQL) is launching its first ever “Great Shave” event. Seven TQL managers are in the running for a potential head shearing. Employees will vote with their donations for the manager they want to see with a shaved head. All of the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.

In August, Brennaman raised thousands of dollars for the Reds Community Fund when he shaved his head after losing a bet. Posters, like the one below, are plastered around TQL offices across the nation to give employees a sneak peak at what the ‘powers that be’ will look like without their hair.

If TQL employees raise more than $5,000 toward the cause, two mystery TQL Vice Presidents also have agreed to take a turn in the barber chair. Voting takes place October 15-24.

TQL has dubbed the month “Pinktober” and the Great Shave is one of several fundraising events taking place. TQL collected more than $13,500 to fight breast cancer last week alone through its annual Loads for a Cure campaign. A Pink Patio Party and check presentation to the American Cancer Society will wrap up the month’s events on Thursday, October 25.
