BENEFITING: Make-A-Wish Vermont
Loren Schick wrote -Loren's beard began to grow in 1975—the height of hippy beards. But his was always urbane: neat, trimmed, elegant. Of course, it was a golden red-brown before it became snow white. He had been wishing he could grow a beard but Standard Oil of New Jersey, where he worked at the time, had a "no facial hair" policy, thinking they were all hippies. His beard started growing the day he left the company, and it's been tickling his wife ever since. Larry wishes every child can achieve his or her own wish, so he'll do his best to raise money to enable Make-A-Wish Vermont make more children's wishes come true.
