The Hair Auction took place on Wednesday, February 9th at Penn State DuBois as part of the dancer send-off spaghetti dinner. Dancers will dance a week and a half later (no sitting, no standing) for 46 hours.
Cameron raised a total of $3000 to cut off his hair. The total raised by this event was over $12,000.
