The FORMER “Most Interesting Man in the World” for Dos Equis did something pretty interesting over the weekend. Jonathan Goldsmith helped judge a BEARD CONTEST in Burlington, Vermont.
The event benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and this year it raised $30,000. Contestants are judged in three categories: Urban beard, freestyle, and backwoods and each contestant has to tell an interesting story about his beard.
The winner was a guy named Bryan Sturge.
He grew his beard for his daughter Zoey, who died of cancer in 2013 at the age of 11.
Skip to the 10-minute mark in this video from the event to hear Jonathan read Bryan’s letter about his heartbreaking promise to Zoey not to shave his beard off until she got better.
