Kuts for Kids: Shaving heads to help match kids with mentors

MADISON (WKOW) -- The UW marching band helped kick off a benefit at Hilldale Mall, called Kuts for Kids.

State Representative Mark Pocan and others shaved their heads to raise money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Dane County.

"A lot of children in the community are looking for mentors. We got a large waiting list and that event will help us get children matched," said Christina Beach with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County.

The goal was to raise $40,000. Organizers say it takes $1,000 a year to match each kid with a mentor.
