    If they raised $10,000 dollars, they would shave off the facial hair.

    They ended up getting more than $15,000—well surpassing their mark.

    Abington Police Chief William J. Kelly, a proud ‘stache owner for more than thirty years, even buzzed his off for the sake of the kids in PAL.

    NBC 10’s Deanna Durante was on-hand to judge the competition.
