Mr. Sweetness’ Sugarbush is back and the bush is bigger than ever! I made it to the finals last year and am hoping to win the title of “Best Backwoods Beard” this year! Winning the title would make me a pretty happy backwoods guy, but what would really make me deliriously happy is to raise a huge sap tank full of cash for Vermont’s Make-a-Wish kids. You see, I’m a pretty lucky guy with three adult kids and two beautiful granddaughters. Tragically, my second baby girl died before she was born 28 years ago, and my big ‘ole backwoods heart goes out to kids and their families struggling with serious illness. Dig deep in your pockets, folks, and help me make a bunch of wishes come true!
