Casey James and his band, ‘Team Casey James,’ raised $13,528.98 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the second annual No Shave November competition. St. Jude named Casey MVB – Most Valuable Beard – for the fundraiser, which his team lead for the majority of the month. He shaved his beard live from the stage last Friday night in Shreveport, LA.
“I’m so proud to have been a part of No Shave November,” Casey said. “Being an artist can sometimes give you the ability to help causes like this in a bigger way. It’s something that I don’t take lightly, and I’m extremely thankful for it. To know that we raised over $13,000 brings me so much joy. I hope we can do more in the future. A special thanks to my band (some of whom haven’t had beards for years) for coming along for the journey.”
