Mountain Men raise money for women’s center

If you notice officers of the Ridgecrest Police Department may have missed a spot while shaving this month, it’s for a good cause. They are participating in the department’s “Mountain Man March” fundraiser for the Women’s Center High Desert.

Officers must raise a minimum of $50 each to be a sponsored beard grower in the annual competition, and the fundraiser is accepting donations through the end of March. Contestants are recognized at the end of the month for best (and worst) beards.

To donate, or for more information, contact Karin Stone at The Women’s Center, 760-371-1969, or Detective Bill Groves, 760-499-5113.
