A hairy bet leads to a good cause

By LISA NICELY Staff Writer Published:

HICKSVILLE What started out as a bet between employees at Parker Hannifin Corp. has turned into a drive to help area children. Throughout the week of Nov. 17, the hydraulic valves and controls manufacturer has been hosting a variety of activities to raise money for the Christmas for Kids project organized by the U.S. Marine Corps League. The events included a bake sale, auction, chili cookoff and more. It was topped off with a hair cut when employee Bruce Husted had his hair cut by another employee, Mike Stuck.
